SCIENCE CASTLE in SINGAPORE is an international conference for youth researchers. It is a platform for Junior and Senior High School students to share their research and development projects with a focus on Science, Technology, and Engineering to solve social challenges faced in ASIA and/or the world in their mission to advance science and technology for the betterment of the society.
Science Castle in ASEAN will continue the base created during Science Castle in Singapore. The ASEAN Castle platform will attract students from the regions and from Japan to network like minded students. Through exchange of ideas and research findings, we hope to see new project comes out as a result.
This is a good opportunity for students who are:
1) Passionate about research in science and technology and bridging research and society
2) Interested in entrepreneurship
3) High motivation in discovering new knowledge to solve real-world issues
High School individuals who are working on research topics independently are welcome to showcase their work.
Students satisfy their curious minds about different fields at the conference as they connect and make friends with international students from Japan and Southeast Asia who are also passionate about research and innovation.
