Sci-tech innovation contest demonstration event held

The demonstration event for the 15th Songjiang Teenagers’ Sci-tech Innovation Competition was held recently at Lida Middle School, bringing together 450 students and teachers, who showcased their works.

The event, which first kicked off in September last year, collected more than 1,000 pieces of creative work – the most it has ever received – covering science pictures and field work events by students and teachers alike.

About 400 projects were put on display this time.

The competition also encouraged young students to look for minor improvements in life. Such inventions include a common desk that can store more items, a supermarket cart that is easier to push, and a trash can that sorts out waste better.

Altogether 14 experts from Shanghai Ocean University, East China University of Political Science and Law and Donghua University were invited to sit on the judges’ panel.

Some of the outstanding works will be selected and sent to the 34th Shanghai Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest to be held later this month.
