Students from Nagyenyed had success in Bukarest
On the 25 April the first Science Fair in Romania was held in the „Grigore Moisil” High School, Bukarest by the physicist dr. Dan Sporea who is the Romanian coordinator of the Hands-on Science program.
The aim of this initiative is to ensure possibilities for the students to learn science by making experiments. There were three sections where the students could show their results: web adoptions promoting learning, visual and classical experiments.
76 competitions were made for the Science Fair where 30 educational institute partecipated among others 8 from Bukarest and 7 from Transylvania. The student teams were accompanied by their teachers. The students had to lure the visitors to their bank to present their ideas and explain the aim of their project. One team tried to convince the others in the manner after the business men how to invest money in. The students from Petrozsény prepaired a presentation about the possibilities of the recovery of the economy in their mining area. The „Gábor Bethlen” High School was the only one hungarian school in the competition: Mr. Attila Fullajtár and Mr. György Györfy presented their experiment made in June 2003, they measured the constant of Sun in their town, Nagyenyed. They won the first prize in the classical experiment’s section.
We hope next year more schools will apply for the Science Fair from our region! The students teams, institutes can find more information about the initiative of Hands-on Science on this website: www.hsci.info or http://www.e-max.ro/handsonscience/
