Science workshop for high school students in Visnjan
What is the Summer School of Science?

Summer School of Science (S3/S3++) is a science workshop held at Visnjan Observatory for high school students interested in natural sciences: biology, chemistry & physics.

School is organized around projects whose aim is to provide students with hands-on experience with science and scientific method in an informal atmosphere. Projects are lead by young scientists and/or university students.

Beside work on projects, all participants attend lectures covering topics of general interest. Both project leaders and lecturers work or study at places of scientific excellence in Croatia and abroad.

The Summer School of Science 2007 is held in two parts:

  • S3 (for grades 9 and 10, in Croatian): 28th July - 3rd August
  • S3++ (for grades 11 and 12, in English; open for international applicants): 6th August - 15th August


Znanstveno-edukacijski centar Višnjan

PRESS RELEASE, 2.kolovoz 2007.g.

Počela 7. Ljetna škola znanosti u Višnjanu

Ovaj međunarodni znanstveno-istraživački program za učenike srednjih škola, već tradicionalno u organizaciji Znanstveno-edukacijskog centra Višnjan, i ove će godine okupiti mlade znanstvene entuzijaste s domaćih i svjetskih znanstvenih institucija. 

Cilj Ljetne škole znanosti (Summer School of Science) je upoznati motivirane učenike srednjih škola iz Hrvatske i svijeta sa znanstvenom metodom i pružiti im praktično iskustvo rada u znanosti. Osim ponuđenog znanstveno-obrazovnog sadržaja, svrha škole je i ponuditi mladim ljudima mogućnost stvaranja vlastite mreže kontakata iz koje će moći profitirati preko razmjene informacija, znanja i savjeta vezanih za studij i buduću karijeru.

Rad na Školi organiziran je u malim grupama pod vodstvom mentora koji svoje mlade kolege vode do realizacije kratkih znanstvenih projekata. Ovogodišnji projekti pokrivaju područja molekularne biologije, forenzike, fizikalne i organske kemije, matematičkog modeliranja, fizike čvrstog stanja i bioinformatike, a interdisciplinarna priroda škole bit će naglašena kroz večernja predavanja uz pozvane predavače te zajedničke radionice vezane uz međudjelovanje znanosti i društva.

Ljetna škola znanosti 2007. održava se u dva kampa: "S3", za učenike 1. i 2. razreda (28.7.- 3.8.) te "S3++", za učenike 3. i 4. razreda srednje škole (6.8.-15.8.). "S3++" je međunarodnog karaktera koji uz sudionike iz Hrvatske uključuje i sudionike iz Turske, Francuske i SAD-a, te je službeni jezik tog kampa engleski.
