The Science for Schools conference gathers 10th graders and high schoolers from around Tromsø in Nordnorsk Vitensenter. Students meet young researchers and present their own research projects.
The purpose of Science for Schools is to convey new research and engage the younger generation in Arctic issues. Additionally, we aim to create an arena where young people can work on their own research projects and be a part of the important work happening in their own region. Here, students have the opportunity to see how researchers work on the topics they normally only read about in textbooks, and they are provided with examples of research relevant to their local area.
