FISSION 2023 is in March

The FISSION International Science Fair is organized by a team of students from the American College of Sofia under the guidance of Dr. Krasimira Chakarova, a long-standing physics teacher at the high school, as well as with the help of the school’s Administration. 

The ninth edition of the science fair will take place in the spring of 2023 at the ACS campus: in-person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual event consists of a contest between students worldwide between 5th and 12th grade. They will have the opportunity to present their academic projects in mathematics, computer science, biology and chemistry, physics and engineering, or ecology. 

During FISSION the participating teams are evaluated by a group of jurors – experts in the respective science categories. Students receive a certificate for participation, and the best projects in each category win special awards.

The schedule of the event includes activities such as an ACS campus tour, workshops, a meeting for team advisors, and more. Most enjoyed by our audience are the lectures by our guests and sponsors, thanks to their professional experience in the scientific fields the contest includes. Awards are announced and given out at the end of the event. 

FISSION organizes accommodation for the night between 24th and 25th March for the teams coming from outside of Sofia. Food and drinks are provided for all team participants and advisors at the event. Official partner of FISSION is New Bulgarian University.
