Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

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 VidyaBha­van (new cam­pus) on Fri­day, 18th Novem­ber, from 9.30am to 5pm.

The an­nual science ex­hi­bi­tion has be­come a muchawaited 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.
