Chevron Enjoy Science partners with Thailand Children’s University to strengthen children’s skills through hands-on science activities
The Chevron Enjoy Science Project has joined hands with the Thailand Children’s University (TCU), a collaborative project under the Royal Patronage of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), the Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology (IPST) and 18 network universities to hold the Children’s University Open House events that provide Thai youth with a one-of-a-kind, hands-on science learning experience. The events offer a fun way for children to learn science that is practical and applicable to their daily lives. Children also participated in several science experiments led by mentors and experts from faculty of science at each university.
In October, a TCU event was organized to honor the His Majesty, the late King, Bhumibol’s dedication to the advancement of science and technology in Thailand. More than 2,000 students from primary and secondary schools across Thailand joined the activities which enabled them to practice essential skills including observation, questioning, problem solving, planning, communication, and experimentation. The activities provided Thai youth with foundational scientific knowledge in science and inspired them about the exciting opportunities offered in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The activities followed the guidance of the late King Bhumibol who contributed so much to improve Thai people’s lives.
