Treat your students to world class international research

During the Nobel festivities, young, award-winning scientists are coming to Stockholm to exhibit their science projects to high school students. This event aims to inspire students as well as provide training in scientific literacy. This year we are proud to announce that we are back on-site with live-presentations and possibility to meet the scientists in person.

Back on stage

The seminar is now back for you to visit and view presenations, posters and meet the brilliant scientists live. SIYSS offers an interesting addition to the regular curriculum, particularly in science and English classes. On December 6th, young world-class researchers showcase their scientific projects at  Filmstaden Sergel at Hötorget, Stockholm. They will present their research live on stage and display their projects, providing students with opportunities to discuss and talk to the young researchers about their projects.

Minds of the Future
By gathering some of the brightest young minds in the scientific community, SIYSS hopes to inspire the young audience members by showcasing what it means to be a scientist. However, science is not just about doing research and presenting your findings. A major aspect of science is communication across disciplines in order to tackle greater issues in society at large. Minds of the Future will highlight this by providing a number of SIYSS participants representing different disciplines and countries with a stage upon which they can discuss some of these issues. The purpose of the panel discussion is to raise awareness of some of these issues, but also inspire hope that scientific collaboration can create a better future.
Last year, “Minds of the Future” was visited by the Nobel laureate in chemistry, David MacMillan. This year, 2023, we have an exciting secret guest of honor. Stay tuned to find out!
