  3. Educational Environment • The Chilean School System • 10.621 schools • Pre-School: Up to 5 years old • Basic Education - Grade 1 to 8 • Mid-Level Education – Grade 9 to 12 • Humanistic – Scientific Track • Technical – Professional Track • 12 years mandatory education (since 2004) • 3.337.976 students • 135.000 teachers

  4. Educational Environment • Chilean Educational System is decentralized. • Schools are managed by private and public organizations. • 59% is financed by the government • 29% is shared by the government and privates • 10% is only private. • Two national test exists: • SIMCE (apply two times during the process) • PSU ( university entrance requirement)

  6. Science Fairs What is the status of Science Fairs in your area? • New Fairs: • Developing a formal national organization of fairs and connecting them to an international network. • Explora program ,supported by the national government, has as its mission the promotion of these activities • Many teachers with good level of interest • Need to expand the number of students participating • Developing specifics science initiatives throughout the educational system connected with fairs.

  7. Science Fairs Our two biggest obstacles are: • Lack of a Ministry of Education guideline for mandatory Fairs at local level. • Quality of projects is improving but not enough

  8. Intel ISEF Educator Academy What will your Action Plan focus on? • Expand the participation of students into local level Fairs. • Increase the number of local Fairs participating across the country affiliated to the national network. • Growth international exchanges with other Latin American Fairs. • Delivering seminars for teacher to help them manage and organize Fairs.
