Music theory innovation and research on four-colour problem will represent Finnish talent at EUCYS 2013
Last week, the final of Finnish Contest for Young Scientists was held at Heureka Science Centre. In the category for high school students and under 21-year-olds two projects rose above the others and will represent Finland at EUCYS 2013 in Prague.
A year ago, some of the brightest young minds in Europe gathered to Helsinki to present their science projects and compete in European Union Contest for Young Scientists. Today, European Journal for Young Scientists and Engineers with scientific articles based on some of these projects is available online.
The 4th ScienceSLAM Helsinki was held at the end of March. Next time, the 10-minute science battle will be held during Millennium Technology Week on 13 June at Helsinki Pavilion, which is built for this summer’s World Design Capital festivities.
The European Union Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS) will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia in September. Kiira Saarela was chosen as the representative of Finland based on her success in a national science competition.
ScienceSLAM is a 10-minute science battle, which gives scientists the opportunity to present their research in a bit more unconventional way. Watch what happened when Herbert Einstein and rapping lab mouse called Ben, among four others, presented what happens in their dusty study rooms and laboratories.
Let’s take 20 minutes to think back the great events at European Union Contest for Young Scientists in Helsinki, day by day. Here’s the official video from the National organiser.
At noon on Tuesday, the EUCYS contestants, and other guests gathered to prestigious Great Hall of the University of Helsinki. The grand prizes went to Ireland, Switzerland, and Lithuania. In the evening, it was time to party.
…is the slogan of 2011 European Union Contest for Young Scientists. On Monday evening, the future scientists competing in EUCYS tried their luck, skills and knowledge in the Amazing Race of Sciences.
Of all 87 interesting projects, which stand to visit? Why not ask the experts, the contestants, who spend the times between jury interviews getting to know each other, and each others’ projects.
Did anyone build a robot? Any medical applications? Any environment-related projects? asked the Dean of Aalto University’s School of Electrical Engineering when the EUCYS contestants visited Otaniemi Campus on Saturday.
