APU STUDENTS RECEIVED TOP AWARDS FOR THEIR SCIENCE PROJECTS.


saigon science fair 2018


Our students won two out of three prizes from HCMC International Schools Science Competition, competing with many other international high schools in HCMC.
The two award-winning projects including the “Water Filtration Machine” with 7 layers to help filter dirty water into drinkable clean water and the “Beehive Charcoal”, an invention of water filtering tool from affordable material of beehive. These two projects were developed with the goal of saving the environment.
The students shared that they were very nervous joining the competition because the judges were very strict and they were “bombarded” with tough questions; but our students, with their knowledge and confidence, successfully proved to the judges that are worthy winners.
“It was tough going against huge international schools like SSIS, ISHCMC, BIS, etc., and meeting all these ‘scary judges’ (laugh) but now that I look back, they are all precious experiences. We really learned a lot from the competition,” John, a contestant, shared.
“We would like to thank Mr. Bill, our Science teaching for guiding us through this entire project with tips & advices Without his encouragement, we could not have done it ourselves,” Kha sent her words of gratitude to her supervisor. Next year, let’s gather even more prizes, APU-ers!
