KAM students come 5th in national science competition
Nature and Science, a Belgian association, organized a contest on scientific work for secondary schools. This year was the 14th edition. Koninklijk Atheneum Mariakerke, or KAM, did not miss this call...
After provincial dispersion tests, the five best-ranked candidates were invited to the national final that took place in May. The students’ presentations were to be lively and understandable for their secondary school peers. Various topics, ranging from biology, ecology, chemistry, physics, geology and technology, archeology, ..., could be addressed.
Three KAM students from the fourth year Science Studies conducted research and submitted a report. After that, they were invited to do a presentation at the national final. What is particular and special about their submission is that they presented a work on biogas, inspired by the use and application in the Rwandan partner school Kiruhura. This "case study" is nicely addressed in their research document. In the final, they came in fifth place. Congratulations to Jordy, Lula and Arne!
