Science show returns with new format, themes

A total of 178 participants comprising students and working professionals wrapped a series of workshops meant to prepare them for the upcoming Seria Energy Lab (SEL) Science Show Competition 2021, according to a statement from SEL.

The organisation said the SEL Science Show Competition is returning for its fifth year and will have new formats and themes – ‘Bon Appetit’, ‘Science Wizardry’, and ‘Infinity and Beyond’.

The workshop “ensures that participants understand what a ‘science show’ is and how different it is from a conventional presentation of knowledge”, said SEL.

The workshop was divided into two categories – Junior Category for students aged eight to 12, and Open Category for participants 13 years and above.

The workshop was conducted at a number of locations including Seria Energy Lab, Muda Hashim Tutong Primary School, Lambak Kiri Secondary School, and Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha Girls Arabic Religious Secondary School in Katok.

The Science Show Competition is a unique edutainment programme conducted by Seria Energy Lab (SEL) where participants demonstrate a series of science experiments to
an audience.

It is a learning platform to inspire youth to be more involved in edutainment and interactive science approach to understanding STEM education. With its unique approach in teaching science to an audience, all teams will be showing their performance flair on stage paired with scientificfacts. A preliminary round will be held in September 2021 to determine which teams will proceed to the final round.
