CAMBORNE Science and International Academy (CISA) will host the UK's first International Student Science Fair 2013.
The five-day event, which starts tomorrow with an opening ceremony at Princess Pavilions in Falmouth, facilitates international interaction and collaboration in science education and it was first held in Thailand.
Some of the world’s most talented science enthusiasts from all corners of the planet will experience various learning opportunities throughout the event, visiting a whole host of venues including the Eden Project, RNAS Culdrose and the Camborne School of Mines.
Guest Speakers include internationally recognised industry leaders including Mr Jonathan Ellis, UK education director at the Bloodhound Project and professor of ecology at the University of Exeter, Dr Dave Hodgson.
The 30 participating schools from an array of countries including Japan, Australia, Canada, Russia and Iran will be based at Tremough campus in Penryn.
Ian Kenworthy, principal at CISA said: “Bringing the fair to the UK and Camborne is a real privilege.
“We have a jam-packed five days for our visitors and they’re sure to leave inspired and full of ideas. We hope the benefits of ISSF will reach far and wide. These partnerships will have a long term impact on Cornwall, spawning new relationships and of course, inspiring the next generation of scientists.”
