14th Science and Makers Fair

Galaxy International School has taken another giant step by organizing its 14th Science and Makers Fair over weekend in Accra.

This year’s Science and Makers Fair which was themed: “Imagine, invent & inspire” was aimed at creating a platform for the students to showcase their mind boggling scientific projects to the world in order to encourage other schools to also enjoy science.

The event which took place at their Secondary School Section located at Ashaley Botwe attracted parents, guardians, students from other public schools and well-wishers from all corners to catch a glimpse of the spectacular event.

More so, spectacular the event was aimed at creating a scientific spirit among the students, increasing their thinking and reasoning power thereby making them more creative and inquisitive.

Press secretary to the Minister of Education, Mr. Rodney Nkrumah Boateng, who graced the occasion noted that “Essentially children are naturally curious and inquisitive, and if scientific concepts are presented to them in a fun, inspiring and practical manner, they appreciate it much better than in a purely classroom or theoretical space.

Galaxy International School’s innovative Science and Makers Fair captures precisely this, and I would like to congratulate the school management for this bold initiative aimed at bringing science closer to children in a meaningful, practical and impactful manner.

I believe this year’s theme, ‘Imagine, Invent & inspire, beautifully captures the essence of what this is fair is all about.”

The Municipal Director of Education, Adenta, Madam Frances Mabel Williams, in her address said the Science Fair is an important occasion for students from around and other places to share ideas and exchange thoughts.

This she said, it offers students a precious opportunity to showcase their achievement which can motivate them to further their pursuit of scientific knowledge.

“Here, I would like to express my deep appreciation of the efforts of the Exhibition Planning Committee whose untiring efforts and organizational ingenuity has made this event an overwhelming success,” she stated.

In his speech Yusuf Temizkan, the Managing Director of Galaxy Int’l Schools, said that “One of the aims of organizing this science fair every year is to teach students to put into practice what they have learnt in theory in the classroom so that they are able to use the knowledge gained to understand new concepts, make well informed decisions and pursue new interests.

It also aims to offer students the ability to access a wealth of knowledge and information which will contribute to an overall understanding of how and why things work like they do.
This year we gave the opportunity to other schools to also come and showcase their scientific projects alongside our students.”
