What is SciCon?
StudentsEra Science And Technology Conference is a one-day high school student centric event held in the Dubai Digital Park.
The event will feature keynote speakers, panels, discussion forums for students, trivia games, university booths & a special contest open to all grade 10,11 & 12 high school students in the GCC.
Who is SciCon for?
SciCon is open for all grade 10,11 & 12 high school or secondary students in the UAE and other GCC countries.
Even if they are not a huge fan of science and technology, we welcome all students to learn, see how science and technology apply to their lives and meet new friends!
Why host SciCon now?
Science and technology both are reaching the pinnacle. And new innovations continue to be made day by day.
Getting students to think abstractly and recognize that their ideas can manifest through either of these is crucial in looking for solutions to the future.
The generation currently graduating high school are the first to be “born into broadband; with the wide variety of information the internet has led too.
SciCon is one of many current events that aims to foster student relationships, encourage growth and build in-person connections after a very isolated learning period during COVID.
The Highlight Of SciCon
Along with a variety of engaging events on the day, SciCon will offer a special prize to the student team who delivers the most innovative idea on the day of the event.
