Cambodia Science and Engineering Festival: The Epitome Of Fun Learning

How to make learning fun? The organisers of the upcoming Cambodia Science and Engineering Festival (CSEF) are definitely the experts. Happening on 12 to 14 March 2015 at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), you will want to be there. The festival is open from 9:00AM to 6:00PM across all three days.

Expect a dynamic hall of exhibitors and attendees eager to learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education which will be carried out in the best way possible.

Get to see quadcopters, segway, robot and gyro-drive… just to name a few. You can even take part in some of the activities. Within the venue, you will also see about 50 exhibitors who will be demonstrating their own technologies. Can you walk on water? Find out the answer to that at CSEF.

This national initiative to spread the awareness of STEM education is set to draw more than 2000 people a day, and seeks to inspire children aged 11 to 17 – the next generation of scientists and engineers. By presenting STEM in a fun, fresh and exciting way, CSEF is sure to excite young Cambodians.

The first of its kind, CSEF is organised by the Golden West Humanitarian Foundation, a non-profit charity dedicated to developing innovative and sustainable technologies for the purpose of removing ERW (Explosive Remnants of War). The festival is held in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport.

The inner workings of the festival are handled by volunteers from the U.S. Ambassador’s Youth Council, and are aged 18 to 25. Around 80 volunteers will be running the logistics and human resource area.

This festival is open to the public, so feel free to head there and see all the cool stuff that is happening. If any teachers in the related fields would like to schedule your classes as workshops, do contact allen@cambodiascience.org.
