Students will present their research during the Student Conference. Each team prepares a presentation about their research project, including their research question, hypothesis, research plan, experiment and results.
This year we encourage school teams to connect their research to climate change. In your presentation, please try to answer the following questions:
- How is our project related to climate change?
- Does our project address the causes or effects of climate change at the local level (drought, greenery in the city, transport to school...)? If so, how?
You will receive feedback from scientists after presenting your project.
The detailed program and registration form will be updated at the beginning of March.
- 50 EUR/person (including charge for Thursday lunch and snacks)
- All teams will arrange travel and accommodation in Prague independently.
