International Science Fair of Port-Vila held today 26th September, Warwick Le Lagon

The science fair takes a different taste this year in Port-Vila. All the school of Efate have been solicited and have worked together to present scientific projects in English and in French. Students coming from Australia, New Zealand, Japan and New Caledonia will also participate to this scientific event which offers more activities this year on the theme “Let’s adapt to environment constraints to be self-sufficient”. 
Year 13 students of the schools of Port-Vila (French School JMG Le Clézio, LAB, Montmartre, Malapoa College and Central School) will participate to the scientific week with the students coming from overseas. From Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th of September, activities, visits and challenges will be offered to strengthen the scientific knowledge and to create bonds which will help the students in their future and maybe they will discover their own vocation.
On Friday 26th of September scientific projects prepared by the students will be displayed during the whole day in the conference room of Le Lagon resort. Anybody is warmly welcome to come and listen explanations of these young scientists as they will present the work achieved during the year. This day “Science Fair” is open to all and the entrance is free. All the schools of Port-Vila can come and present a project and any person interested in science is welcome to visit this exhibition while listening to the comments of those who made the projects.
This International Science Week (ISW) has been possible thanks to the financial support of AEFE (Agence pour l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger), UNELCO, Digicel, BRED bank and the French Embassy.
