WiN IAEA participates in INMM International Science Fair

On 26 March, the International Science Fair took place in the Sportshall of the American International School in Vienna, organized by the Institute of Nuclear Material Management (INMM) and WiN IAEA. Five different international schools (American, Vienna, Danube, Christian and Lyçee Français) participated to compete for the best Junior and Senior Awards for scientific/technical projects of individual students or teams of students aged between 12 and 18 years in the fields of Biological and Health Sciences, Physical and Computing Sci-ences, Environmental and Life Sciences, and Engineering and Technology Sciences.
The judges were volunteers taken from UN organizations residing in Vienna International Center and from Permanent Missions to the UN including WiN IAEA chapter members; they evaluated about 50 projects ex-hibited and presented by about 80 students. The award ceremony took place on 31 March during a banquet at the Vienna International Center where the awardees were nominated and prices were handed over to the students. The WiN IAEA chapter donated a specific award which were presented to the students below.
The judges and the visitors were impressed with the skills and enthusiasm of all students leaving them with the difficult decision whom to award: In short we would have loved to give awards to every single project and student! We congratulate all students and specifically the WiN awardees for their achievements and encour-age them to continue their studies hopefully leading to a carrier in Natural Sciences.
