1st edition at a glance

Over 5.5 thousand candidates applied to the 1st edition of the programme and faced a multi-stage recruitment process. To become one of the ten finalists, the young enthusiasts of exact and life sciences had to face a multi-stage, innovative recruitment process That allowed for selecting 50 participants of the innovative science camp that took place in July 2015 in Warsaw. Based on factors including commitment and achievements during the camp, motivation to learn and the evaluation interview, the best participants now have the chance to obtain a scholarship tailored to their needs and aspirations.

Science camp of the 1st edition of the programme

Innovative science camp – the prize awarded to the 50 most talented teenagers in Poland – took place in July 2015. Its participants were divided according to their interests into four subject groups.

The enthusiasts of chemistry and biochemistry under the supervision of an Oxford graduate and a PhD at the University of Vienna studied the chemistry of living organisms at the atomic and molecular level. The classes focused on the analysis of such processes as the evolution of organisms, transfer of energy and information inside the cell, as well as diseases (e.g. neoplasms). The participants got acquainted with the latest methods of laboratory testing and biophysical research, for example while testing cell metabolism by way of spectroscopy.

Under the direction of a postgraduate student at the Biophysics Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences and a postgraduate student at the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge, the students interested in medicine and medical sciences analysed the DNA structure. They also learnt to evaluate microscope slides, perform blood typing, and identify bacteria and peripheral blood cells based on their morphology. During the classes taught by a UCL postgraduate student, a physician and a psychologist, they also had the opportunity to learn the basics of surgical sutures, animal organs dissection and clinical study.

At the same time, the group comprised of engineers and the enthusiasts of robotics built propeller-driven aeroplane models, finding out about the Bernoulli’s principle that allows machines to fly. They learnt the arcana of aeronautics from an MSc in the engineering of aviation from the Imperial College London, a postgraduate student at the Technical University of Madrid.

The last subject block was physics and nanotechnologies. The young people in this group could participate in classes taught by a postgraduate student at the University of Edinburgh, specialising in extreme conditions physics.

All the participants also took part in special lectures. One of them was devoted to the biotechnological modification of insects. The others pertained to neuroinformatics, brain-computer interface and assistive technologies, as well as radiobiology.

The participants could also enjoy trips to places normally unavailable to visitors, among them modern laboratories of the Adamed Group, the National Centre for Nuclear Research in Świerk or the Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences – and the employees of those institutes prepared special lectures for them. The young people also participated in soft skills training, including team work and public speaking, as well as workshops on 3D printing technology and MOCK Interviews – emulating recruitment interviews for universities or jobs.

The camp programme was also supplemented with activities allowing the young people to socialise and exchange opinions in a less formal environment. They visited the Warsaw Old Town and participated in cooking classes.
They also met with students and graduates from all over the world at the Job Fair.
