European Schools  Science Symposium

Every year the annual European Schools Science Symposium (ESSS) is held in one of the 14 European Schools. Each year several students prepare science projects for this event with the help of their teachers and parents, sometimes with external experts from different universities. In 2015 our school is going to be the host of this great event.

The selection of the applicants is always a very difficult task for the jury members. The schools organize their own selection in their home science competition. In our school we select our best presentations in the Science Festival. This event gives floor for about 35-40 presentations every year. More than 700 students visit our Festival on this day and with their clapping they could help the jury.

The jury selects the best Festival presentations which suited the requirements of the ESSS. These projects continue their research and they still improve their presentations and posters with the help of a tutoring team (Mrs Gancedo, Mrs.Krausz, Mr. Naidoo, Mr Soto Moreno, Mr Pindstrup, and Mr Fodor).  

Our students reached their biggest success in ESSS in 2012 (Alicante) where there were 71 science projects and about 150 students from 12 European Schools. Among these excellent projects there were 23 students with 12 projects and 3 oral presentations from our school.

In the senior—poster  category the 3rd prize was given to

Victoria von Glasenapp S6DEa

The second prize went to:

Viktoria Zekoll S5DEa

CONGRATULATION for the above mentioned participants and winners and their teachers and parents who supported these projects and helped our students for this outstanding scientific event.

Teachers:

Heidrun KRÜGER (German section), Patricia CORNET and Eric PIQUET (French section)

Berta HERMANN-NAGYNÉ and Zoltán FODOR (Hungarian section)

We all hope this fantastic result motivates our students to participate in ESSS in future.
