Science International Forum – Kuwait (SIF), a platform that aims to ‘ignite the minds of tomorrow’ by encouraging scientific temperament among the young, is pleased to announce that this year’s Kuwait Children’s Science Congress (KCSC) will take place at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (new campus) on Friday, 18th November, from 9.30am to 5pm.
The annual science exhibition has become a much-awaited event among students as it provides children of 10 to 17 years of age a unique opportunity to showcase their scientific knowledge and aptitude. The program has students forming five-member teams to undertake a project based on an assigned theme. The team has to explore and analyze problems around the project theme and find a suitable solution to overcome the challenges.
The second iteration of the annual KCSC will witness over 150 child scientists from all the major Indian schools in Kuwait, exhibiting their projects based on the theme, ‘Science, Technology and Innovation for Sustainable Development’.
As part of this year’s KCSC, three innovative science spot contests are also being arranged where students can walk-in with their ideas, participate in the competitions and win exciting prizes. Competitions are arranged in three groups: Sub-Juniors (Classes 5, 6 and 7), Juniors (Classes 8, 9 and 10) and Seniors (Classes 11 and 12).
In the ‘Sci-Fie’ contest, competitors have to observe their surroundings to find some exciting scientific fact and capture it via a ‘selfie’ on a mobile camera. They then have to take a print out of the picture and write a description about the science behind their observation, before submitting their entries at the KCSC event before 3pm.
The ‘Art of Science’ is a pencil-drawing competition where contestants will draw an image on the theme ‘Rising India – Science and Technology’. Students will have to register for the competition between 9.30am and 2pm and the drawing competition will extend for one hour and half.
In the third spot competition, titled ‘Math Genius, students will be tested on their mathematical analytical and logical skills. Competitors can walk-in between 9.30am and 2pm to participate in this competition.
Parents and students in Kuwait are invited to attend KCSC 2016 for a day full of spot games, fun and science and the hope is that this year’s innovative programs will inspire a scientific outlook in the young, and empower and expand their minds to the world around them.
