09/04/2020 UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel ISEC 2020. We are aware of how disappointing this is, but we had to consider the safety implications of continuing with ISEC given the international nature of the camp. We hope you understand our decision.
However, we are going to arrange a free online ISEC alternative to whoever is interested. We are currently working on the structure and organization and we will upload more details shortly.
Have you ever stopped to look at some natural event, frowned and asked: Why? Why is the sky blue? Why can birds fly? Why do we have eclipses? Why do we fall in love?
Most of us are born with a beautiful, curious mind that unrelentingly seeks answers. Unfortunately, it sometimes gets lost along the way. Despite everything we have accomplished, sometimes science is taught in an old-fashioned way. If you’re tired of long hours watching a boring teacher write unintelligible equations on the blackboard or fed up with endless sheets full of meaningless exercises, you’ve come to the right place: Welcome to the International Science Engagement Challenge. Here you can explore your passion for science with peers and mentors who share your enthusiasm.
Here at ISEC we will do our best to provide you with a fun and educational science experience without all the boring lectures. From the first day, you will work on your very own science research project. All participants will have an opportunity to learn new skills and concepts while completing a project under the supervision of a qualified mentor with experience in the field.
