Are you a hard-working Middle School student? Do you love Science? Are you ready to dedicate your Saturdays to a project for a chance at international travel, fame, and prestige? If you can answer yes to these three questions, RIS has an amazing opportunity for you!
Professor Cafer Yavuz is a Turkish scholar currently teaching and conducting research at KAIST in Daejeon. Professor Yavuz has offered to lead two groups of RIS students through the process of preparing and presenting projects at two different Science Olympiad competitions.
One group of students will compete at the 20th International Environmental Project Olympiad (INEPO) held in Istanbul, Turkey in May, 2012 . Another group of students will prepare to compete at I-SWEEEP, the International Sustainable World (Energy, Engineering, and Environment) Project Olympiad, held in Houston, USA in May, 2012.
Each group will consist of two Middle School students with proven aptitude and achievement in Science. Students will need to commit to this Olympiad preparation for approximately four hours every Saturday from now until the competition. These Saturday sessions will be held on alternate weekends at RIS in Seoul and at Professor Yavuz's facilities in Daejeon.
All parents of interested students should contact Mr. Emin directly to discuss the logistics of this commitment in terms of scheduling, transportation, and costs. In order to begin the necessary preparations as soon as possible, please contact Mr. Emin by this Wednesday, November 23rd. He will be able to explain more fully to you the incredible opportunity these Olympiad competitions represent for the students.
Last Year 5 of our Middle school students won Honourable Mention in Texas, and Bronze medal in Turkey.
