Im a science Teacher, i recently organized a science fair for secondary school students to encourage the study of science and technology related courses. The fair was themed my science hero/heroine, the list included: Marie Curie: Dmitri mendeleyev; Neil Bohr; John Dalton and other scientists who have imparted the world. They were requested to write an essay on any of these scientists and defend their essays by making models, prototypes of what the scientist invented or discovered. The event included a career guidance and counselling session to the faculties of Science, medicne and related courses. The project was designed, organized and funded by friends and family. I hope to utilize participation in activities of the IYC 2011 to unfold my other projects which aims to encourage more students especially girls to pursue science and technology related courses. Please help me actualize my dreams, i have a report on the project which was submitted to the Ministry of education and other related documents to back up my effort. i hope to hear from your organization soonest.
