The Science Workshop 2018 started on the 13th of February. Early in the morning 40 students made their way to Zurich International School.

After welcoming all the students, it was time to start working on the chosen problems. While some students had already started working on their problem prior to the Workshop and were ready to start further experimentation, others were new to the problems and had to research their problem statement further before being able to conduct experiments. By the afternoon everyone was working eagerly.

Wednesday
In the morning, the participants arrived from different regions of Switzerland as well as the Principality of Liechtenstein. They were welcomed at Zurich main station and guided to the Science Lab at the University of Zurich. After a general introduction, the participants had time to discuss their ideas on how to approach their problems. In the afternoon, they followed up with first experimental investigations.

Interested in participating at the SYNT but not sure how to prepare for it? We are delighted to organize the SYNT Science Workshop to help you prepare for the SYNT. During a three-day workshop you will get the chance to work on a selected SYNT problem and receive tailored coaching by our experienced mentors. In addition, you will get to meet other participants and take part in different fun activities.

The Science Workshop 2018 will take place between the 13th and 15th of February at Zurich International School. Please note that for organizational reasons only the problems 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 will be offered during the Workshop.

All costs (incl. accommodation, food, transportation) will be covered. Should you require a confirmation of participation or should you have any questions, feel free to contact us
