TechScape - SPEED Youth's Tech Fair
SPEED Youth's Tech Fair, known as 'TechScape', is about providing a platform to youth aged 8-18 years to delve more deeply into science and technology and come up with innovative solutions to problems they see around them. Providing practical solutions to practical problems is the key here as the program is designed to show students the difference between 'showing Science' and 'doing Science'. The idea is to encourage students not just to create a model but create something tangible which works and in turn does solve a practical problem. Allowing and motivating them to think and work out of the box with their own imagination helps increase their creativity and teaches a problem-solving approach. As they grow a love for the scientific method, they not only enrich their experiences in the classroom but also develop an approach to the world that seeks to solve problems rather than accept them.
Topics in TechScape usually range from energy & space, electronics, food science, flora & fauna, earth sciences, inventions & innovations, and a lot more! Students get to pick one topic and in a pair they create a project which is exhibited on the final Tech Fair Day.
All schools in Dhaka are open to participate and individual registrations are also encouraged. The program is held between mid October to mid November and is a 2-day program with interactive knowledge-broadening workshops on the first day and the final project exhibition on the second day.
TechScape is truly where science and technology meets creativity and a glimpse of the program can be found @ our Facebook page.
