NSTF Science Programmes - Gozo Science Days

NSTF Science Days in Gozo 2015

Following the success of the first edition of the 'NSTF Science Days in Gozo,' NSTF held the second edition of this science popularisation event in Gozo between the 9th and 11th of March 2015 at the Gozo College Boys' Secondary (Rabat).

During this event all art work, models and research conducted by Gozitan students in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and related subjects as part of the NSTF Science programmes, were displayed at the Boys' Secondary School.

The event was open for all Gozitan Students to visit during schools hours. During the same event science communicators organised interactive sessions for the students.

The success of this event depends on the participation of students. We highly encourage each school to participate in as many competitions as possible depending on the age groups.

Join Sharklab Malta on an interactive journey beneath the surface of the blue planet and learn all about the amazing world of Sharks and other amazing animals which call this place home and the important roles they play in keeping the planet running during the NSTF Science Days in Gozo.

Starting on the shore we will journey along the beach for signs of their presence, enter the shallows and finally explore the darkness of the deep sea.
