Summer School of Science in Croatia – Applications Open

Summer School of Science in Croatia

For the sixteenth year in a row, a group of young scientists will organise the International Summer School of Science in Croatia.

Organised by the Society for Out-of-Frame Education, this year’s International Summer School of Science in Croatia will be held in the western Slavonian city of Požega.

The summer school is aimed towards talented high school students interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and offers an opportunity for participants to get hands-on experience working in small groups on a specific project.

Participants learn and practice the scientific method and analysis, which are extremely valuable skills in the later stages of their career. In addition to exploring science, these camps are an excellent opportunity to find inspiration and share the enthusiasm for discovery with like-minded individuals. Project work is accompanied by evening lectures from eminent scientists and workshops aimed to put science in a wider social context.

“In 2018 the participants will have a possibility to work aside young scientists from all over the world (USA, France, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Croatia etc). Our confirmed speakers and project leaders are diligent and ready to demonstrate excellence through the personalized approach. In an open and informal atmosphere, students and their mentors work together, creating long-lasting relationships that not only help their individual careers, but also promote international and intercultural understanding,” say organisers.

The Summer School of Science is divided into two camps:

S3 for students who are completing the 9th or 10th grade (29th July – 8th August)
S3++ for students who are completing the 11th or 12th grade (9th – 19th August)

The official language of the School is English and the school is open to the high-school students from all over the world.

Motivated students should consult the Internet page of the School http://www.drustvo-evo.hr/s3/index.html for a complete list of projects and to find the application form.

Applications are open until May 1st, 2018.
