The event will be hosted at The Cyprus Institute’s facilities in Nicosia, and is open to all school science groups, ages 9 -18 from both the private and public sectors.

At least 24 schools and 36 science groups will demonstrate their scientific projects to the public, and will get a chance to tour The Cyprus Institute’s facilities, attend related lectures, and enter a contest for the best presentation.

In addition, the public will also have the opportunity to visit the facilities and laboratories of The Cyprus Institute, and get acquainted with three major areas of research on Energy, Environment and Water Resources, Archaeology and Computational Science.
