“I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.” Albert Einstein

St Andrews International School is proud to host the first competitive Science Fair of its kind on the 22nd – 23rd March involving students from three other international schools.

The aim of our fair is to get students from St Andrews, Regents, Garden International and ISE to think critically about science, to investigate their observations, to test old ideas and to think of new ones. Who knows, they may yet solve something we have always wondered about.

The fair will be a great event where students, limited only by their imagination, will compete for some fantastic prizes. The St Andrews Science Department will also provide a Science Show and run an interactive Science Olympiad involving bottle rockets and potato cannons for participants to compete with or against their parents.

It would, however, not be possible to run an event like this without the generous support from the following companies who have invested in the young people from the area and sponsored the event. A big thank you must go to Sedexo; Silamas Transport; Rayong Marriot Spa & Resort Caterpillar; Kaokong Petroleum; PTT petroleum, as well as Pattaya Mail who will be covering the event.

The fair will run on March 22nd and March 23rd and will be open to the friends and parents from the participating schools, as well as interested members from the public who wish to come and be amazed. Viewing times: 22nd March – 1pm – 3pm and 23rd March – 9am – 1pm
