The 10th edition of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka is under way
- Elhuyar Science Fair is 10 years old.
- The registration deadline will be open from today, January 10, until February 28, on the website of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka.
- The project has included 301 researchers and researchers, who will support youth groups in developing their scientific projects.
The registration deadline is opened today in Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka, the Elhuyar Science Fair, which this year reaches its tenth edition. From its first edition in 2013 to date, almost 7,000 young people between 12 and 18 have participated in the Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka. In total, 1,089 research projects or technological projects have been carried out, of which almost 720 have been presented in the various editions of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka, held in Bilbao.
Elhuyar invites young people between 12 and 18 years of age from the Basque Country and its faculty to develop scientific and technological projects, since Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka is an initiative that gathers scientific projects developed by students, with the objective of knowing from within scientific research and technological development. All centers in Euskadi are invited to participate with young people from ESO and Bachillerato.
Youth groups work together around a theme of their choice: they inquire, investigate, design, build, share and experience new experiences. The result of this work is a research project or a technological project. The central event of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka will be held the first weekend of June at the Arenal Dock in Bilbao, where you will be able to learn firsthand the work done by boys and girls.
In order to provide support and close references to the professional world STEM, Elhuyar has already brought together a large group of researchers from the Basque Network of Science and Technology to advise them on their work. In fact, 301 researchers and researchers have targeted Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka in 2022 to advise young participants; 52 percent are women, 47 percent men and the rest are non-binary.
Thus, within their projects, the young will meet real professionals in science and technology, who will accompany them in their work and with whom they will share their adventures and experiences.
Details and conditions of participation, as well as the registration form, are already available on the Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka website.
Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka has the financial support of the Basque Government, the Government of Navarra, the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), the City of Bilbao, the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, Erabi and the Euroregion, as well as the collaboration of the main Basque universities and research centres.
