SCALACS will be hosting a Virtual International High School Students Research Symposium on December 2, 2023, from 9 am to 6 pm under the ACS’s LSAC/DEIR Grant Funding. Sponsored by Lumiere Education, registration for this event is free to all high school students. The Symposium features 15-minute high school students' presentations via Zoom. Topics include all areas of the STEM subjects. We urge high school teachers to encourage their students to attend this free event as there are many interesting topics being presented by their peers from all over the world. It'll be a very insightful event for all.

The top 6 presentations will be awarded US$100 each as determined by a panel of judges appointed by SCALACS. Attendee registration closes at midnight on November 27th. To date, we have around 30 student presenters from all over the world (see below).


We will email the Zoom link to registrants by December 1, 2023.
