VAS students’ scientific research – From practicality to applicability09/11/2020
To help students maximize their ability to study, research, and innovate in Science and Technology in order to integrate with the modern world, VAS continuously organizes academic competitions in addition to annual art and sports activities. Among of them is a particularly important competition for secondary students, “Scientific research”. Over the past school years, many projects by VAS students have won high awards in Scientific Research contests at District and City levels.
In this year’s competition, VAS received 22 projects in multiple fields such as Biochemistry, Natural Science, Social and Behavioural Science, Behavioural Psychology, Organic compounds, Chemistry, Material Science, Embedded system,… At the final round of the contest, held at Ba Thang Hai campus yesterday, each research group presented their ideas and summarised the implementation process as well the results of the project.
Congratulations to 12 outstanding projects that have won the awards in the Science Research Contest at the School level in the school year 2020-2021:
