(11:34:06 AM, 14/07/2017)
"Renewable Energy for Life" is the theme of the sixth ASEAN Plus Three Junior Science Odyssey (APT JSO-6) event, co-organized by Vietnam's Ministry of Science and Technology and ASEAN Plus Three for the Gifted in Science (ACGS). The event is aimed at encouraging and nurturing gifted students in the field of science and technology.
The event attracts about 180 students, teachers and observers from ten ASEAN countries and its three partner countries, as well as Sweden.
It also provides the students with a chance to participate in competitions in physics, chemistry, and biology; and conduct research and cultivate creativity via poster presentations and lab skills assessment, while the teachers will share their experiences in education for those gifted in science and attend a workshop on promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) for students through the application of renewable energy.
Nearly 30 posters on renewable energy have been introduced as an opportunity for students in many countries to work together to promote the spirit of rigorous scientific research, teamwork and the development of ideas.
