@ NUS High School of Mathematics and Science

Event description

The ISSF   is an international student fair hosted on a rotating basis by a network of science high schools worldwide. It was officially launched in 2005 to facilitate international interaction and collaboration in science education. The ISSF brings together students, teachers and school leaders to share and develop their ideas about science in a modern world. The ISSF is the major event of its type in the world with a focus on the combined sharing and development of teaching and learning in science education. Each year’s event creates a learning hub for participants that provide a range of forums promoting the development in teaching and learning of science research and science education.

ISSF aims  provide students with opportunities to:

1. effectively communicate scientific knowledge and concepts to an international audience;
2. think critically about how effective leadership in science can provide solutions to complex societal issues;
3. make cross-cultural connections with gifted science students, teachers and principals.
