  5. Educational Environment • Test Driven Curriculum • Science and math classes at 1st grade; at 11th grade, choice of taking Science or Humanity class • Science class: Physics, Chemistry and/or Life Science • Humanity class: World Culture, Humanity and Geography • 160 credits required for high school graduation • 25% students apply for admission to universities; 75% students take Joint College Entrance Examination.

  6. Science Fairs • National Taiwan Science Education Center organizes National Primary & High School Science Fair(NPHSSF) and Taiwan International Science Fair(TISF) • Most funding comes from the government, also received funding from Intel, KT Lee Foundation for science & technology, GFC & TDK Corporation • 183 students, 121 projects from 11 countries participating at 2009 TISF

  7. Science Fairs Biggest obstacles • Insufficient government support & funding • Good quality of projects, involve research & experimentation • Low participants ratio compared to the populations of students • Schools focus on academic performance & exams, in general teaching practices do not support project based learning

  8. 2009 Taiwan International Science Fair • Participating countries: Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand & United States of America. • Grade 9-12 students; winners of local or national science fairs • Interested to participate in TISF?
