The ninth edition of the FISSION International Science Festival will take place on April 12-13, 2024 on the campus of the American College of Sofia.

Every year, the event brings together young people from different countries to present academic research projects. FISSION is organized by a select group of ACS students under the guidance of the school administration and Dr. Krasimira Chakurova, ACS physics teacher.

Participants are students from 5th to 12th grade, from different parts of Bulgaria and the world.

During the science fair, all students have the opportunity to submit projects in categories ranging from biomedical, biological and chemical sciences to ecology and environmental sciences, computer science, mathematics, physics and engineering.

Hotel accommodation is provided for all teams coming from outside of Sofia on the evening of April 12, and food and beverages are available for all participants and their supervisors during the event.

Each project is assessed by a panel of established scientists and experts. After the projects are carefully reviewed and evaluated, the jury awards students with “Best Project” Award or “Honorable Mention”Award in each category.

The event schedule includes campus tours, workshops and lectures for participants and their supervisors by guest speakers and scholars, and various networking opportunities.

The event is also open to visitors and guests on April 13, 2024.

Last year’s edition of FISSION was a huge success and was the first in-person edition since 2019. 104 students, together with their supervisors, presented a total of 55 projects, and many visitors had the opportunity to take a look at the projects and enjoy the event schedule.

This year, FISSION International Science Fair will once again welcome participants from all over the world and encourage them to inquire and inspire. The registration for the event continues to be open in February.

More information can be found on the FISSION website, as well as on Facebook and Instagram.
