The 10th edition of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka begins

2022/01/10 STEAM-Hezkuntza (Elhuyar Zientzia)

The registration deadline for the Elhuyar Science Fair 2022 is now open. Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Since its first edition in 2013 to date, almost 7,000 young people between 12 and 18 have participated in the Elhuyar Science Fair. In total, 1,089 research or technological projects have been carried out, of which about 720 have been presented at the Elhuyar Science Fairs organized in Bilbao.

Elhuyar invites young people between 12 and 18 years of age from Euskal Herria and its professors to develop science and technology projects, since Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka is an initiative of scientific projects developed by young people so that they can live internally scientific research and technological development, and all the centers of Euskal Herria are invited to participate with young people from ESO and Bachillerato.

The group will work on the theme decided by the youth groups: asking, researching, designing, constructing, sharing and living new experiences. The result of the work will be both a research project and a project. The first weekend of June will be held at the Arenal Dock in Bilbao the central event of the Elhuyar Science Fair, with the possibility of knowing firsthand the work done by young people.

In order to support young people who may have references close to the STEM professional world, Elhuyar has already gathered a large group of students from the Basque Science and Technology Network to advise them. In fact, 301 researchers have enrolled in the Elhuyar Science Fair of 2022 as youth advisors. 52% of the researchers are women, 47% men and the rest are non-binary.

Thus, within their projects, young people will meet true science and technology professionals, share their adventures and experiences with them and accompany them in their work.

Details and conditions of the Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka and the registration form are available on the website of Elhuyar Zientzia Azoka.

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 collaboration of the main Basque universities and research centres and the Euroregion.
