The Chevron Enjoy Science Project, in collaboration with Thailand’s National Science Museum (NSM), the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), and the Bureau of Vocational Education Research and Development, invite young “makers” to showcase their talents in the “Enjoy Science: Young Makers Contest Year 2.”
Danger lurks all around; we encounter danger every day when we cross the street at a busy intersection, wander down an unlit alley, and even surf the Internet. Fortunately, modern technology offers us the potential to reduce the daily risks we all face.
To this end, the Chevron Enjoy Science Project, in collaboration with NSTDA, NSM, and the Ministry of Education’s Bureau of Vocational Education Research and Development, has launched the “Enjoy Science: Young Makers Contest Year 2.” The contest provides young makers from schools, vocational colleges, and universities the opportunity to develop solutions to address this year’s theme of ‘Innovation for Safer Communities.’ The winning team will earn an all-expenses-paid trip to participate in the “Maker Faire Bay Area” in San Francisco. The contest will also divvy out a total of 1.2 million baht in prizes to other outstanding participants. Overall, the contest is part of the Chevron Enjoy Science Project’s ongoing effort to grow Thailand’s maker community and foster a culture of innovation, learning exchange, and creativity among young people.
During the launch event, the winners of the first Enjoy Science: Young Makers Contest shared their innovation and experiences from participating in the program, including their once-in-a-lifetime visit to an overseas “Maker Faire.” They also expressed their eagerness to leverage their innovations and creativity to become citizens of Thailand 4.0.
