Five BIS Students attended the Saigon International Schools STEM (SISSTEM) Fair at the Canadian International School over the weekend of 14 May.
The fair which focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics encourages students in Years 7 to 9, to research, develop, and present projects in these fields. This year’s fair in HCMC was attended by 57 students from five schools.
The BIS students were presenting projects which they had developed for their CREST certificates, which included a wide variety of ideas from the most effective antacid to how far a water rocket travels. The CREST certificate is an internationally recognised certificate awarded by the British Science Association for an extended project in Science or Design.
The ingenuity of the designs and hard work of all participants was recognised by the judges. Particular mentions go to Maya Olcer (Year 9), who won second place in her year group for the chemistry behind Egyptian mummies, and Renee Streitberg (Year 7) who came first for her project on the science behind acid rain. We are delighted that two of our students featured in the prizes.
Congratulations go to all our students who participated in this very successful event.
