As a part of British Council’s continuous support to its partner Schools across Egypt, we are presenting Science Stars!

Science Stars is a scientific competition offered to upper secondary students currently studying in one of British Council partner schools. This is an opportunity in which they can share their scientific ideas, learn presentation and communication skills, exchange experience, compete with many other students and win awards.

Science is a challenging topic for many people, so we are offering our brilliant students the chance to present their scientific idea in a simple and attractive 3-minute presentation to various types of audience and help them understand science better.
