Learn Science through English
23 September 2019
We’ve been continuously running the ADAMED SmartUP programme for 5 years now. This time, we decided to intensify our efforts to assist secondary school students in Warsaw in acquiring new knowledge and skills. In collaboration with the Warsaw City Hall, we will host advanced chemistry workshops for the youth aged 15-19. All classes will be held in English.
The Science through English course is an opportunity for the participants not only to advance their knowledge of physical and organic chemistry but also to improve their language skills and become familiar with specialist English vocabulary, which is a must for anyone planning a career in science.
Students can choose from two dedicated curricula: biology and chemistry or physics and chemistry. The first one will allow them to understand how modern medicines are manufactured, learn how to conduct professional experiments, and work with scientific literature, while the second one will cover infinitesimal calculus and the basis of electrochemistry and quantum theory. Both curricula will be taught at an academic level and include laboratory classes.
What is the enrolment process like?
To enrol, please go to our website: https://adamedsmartup.pl/science-through-english/. Before starting the classes, participants will be required to take an English test. Those with an English language certificate at a minimum B1 level will be exempt from the test. Applicants who provide the best justification for their interest in exact and natural sciences in the application form will be invited to join the course.
Classes will be held once a month, on Saturdays, and will be taught by reputable lecturers with extensive international experience, including a graduate from Oxford University and researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and St. Andrews University.
Participants can choose from two schedules: from 10:00 AM to 01:30 PM and from 02:00 PM to 05:30 PM. Those interested are encouraged to register as soon as possible as the number of openings is limited.
The project is co-funded by the City of Warsaw.
