Annual ACS Science Fair

24 March 23 | 10:00 AM


Why an ACS Science fair?

The ACS Science Fair is an opportunity for curious, motivated students to investigate science
topics that interest them. It is also a chance for students to share their thoughts, ideas and
talents with the ACS student body, faculty and guests from outside the college. In the end, it
is a learning experience for all, participants and spectators alike, and a celebration of the
purest of pursuits – SCIENCE!

The first ACS Science Fair happened in the distant 1996 and ever since it was an event of
sharing enthusiasm in knowledge bowls, challenges, and focusing on original student projects
of two types – Models and Experiments.

What is FISSION and how is it different from the ACS Science Fair?

FISSION is an international competition initiated and hosted by ACS students first in 2016. It
is for students who are currently at their high school stage of education. Teams of up to two
members create projects in one of two types (Experiment, Working Model) and in one of four
categories based on their interests. FISSION aims to encourage inquiry-based learning in
students, and take them beyond the limitations of classroom science. Mentored by one of
their science teachers, they should come up with original and applicable solutions of relevant
scientific issues, invent a novel device or a computer program, or demonstrate an interesting
phenomenon in a new way.
