The science camp of the ADAMED SmartUP 2nd edition has started
On 7th August, the 2nd edition of the ADAMED SmartUP innovative science camp was held. A group of 50 Polish students will spend two weeks discovering the secrets of exact sciences under the supervision of distinguished lecturers from Polish and foreign universities. The programme for the participants includes classes e.g. in quantum chemistry, macromolecules, pathophysiology, robotics, sensors, aircrafts engineering, fluid mechanics, entropy and quantum physics.
The camp classes constitute a unique combination of lectures and practical classes. The camp participants use well-equipped laboratories, experiment rooms, simulators and the most innovative research equipment. Research trips to the Space Research Centre or the Institute of Laser Plasma are also planned.
This year’s ADAMED SmartUP edition enjoyed great popularity among middle and high school students. Several thousand candidates took part in the programme registration process and underwent a multistage recruitment for the camp, including e.g. a scientific game online.
The 2015 Camp is the second event of this kind organised by ADAMED SmartUP. Last year, the participants had an opportunity to e.g. identify bacteria, analyse DNA, discover the secrets of robotics or become familiar with intelligent materials used in medicine. The classes – as all the camp participants unanimously admitted – were extremely interesting and useful, and the scientific discussions frequently lasted longer than expected, exceeding the limits set by the schedule.
As in the last edition, 10 grand prize laureates will be selected from among the 50 participants of this year’s camp. The award includes a 10-month long individual educational tutoring programme conducted by experts and scholars, and a scientific scholarship adjusted to the laureates’ individual needs.
The laureates of the last year’s edition of the ADAMED SmartUP programme had a real hands-on experience of how important the consultations can be. Thanks to their mentors’ support, they won first prizes in national and international Olympiads, commenced studies at the best universities in the world, or had the opportunity to carry out individual research projects.
