Unleashing Potential: ISHCMC Students Invited to Explore STEM Horizons at LIYSF

In the dynamic realm of education, opportunities that spark curiosity and foster global perspectives are rare gems. Today, we are delighted to unveil a unique prospect for the talented minds of the International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) – an exclusive invitation from the London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF).

LIYSF: Nurturing Minds Since 1959

Established in 1959, LIYSF stands as an accredited not-for-profit social enterprise with a compelling vision. Their mission is to provide students aged 16-21 with a profound understanding of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and its applications for the betterment of humanity.

At the heart of LIYSF is the idea of uniting young minds from diverse nations, fostering connections and cultural understanding through a shared passion for science.

A Global Gathering of Minds

LIYSF annually hosts a two-week program at the prestigious Imperial College London, drawing in 500 of the brightest science students from over 80 countries. This immersive program offers a rare opportunity for participants to interact with Nobel prize-winning speakers, explore cutting-edge research, and engage with like-minded peers on a global stage.

Key Highlights of LIYSF:

  • Program Duration: July 24th to August 7th, 2024

  • Main Events:

    • 10 main lecture demonstrations by world-leading scientists

    • 4-day visits to top UK university laboratories and research centers

    • 4 specialist lecture sessions covering a spectrum of STEM subjects

    • Active social program promoting cultural exchange

Behind the Scenes: Unlocking Potential

One distinctive feature of LIYSF is its emphasis on empowering students. The program eliminates the need for a chaperone, encouraging participants to engage in a university-style course. With an on-site staff team and experienced on-call support, LIYSF ensures a safe and enriching experience for participants aged 16 and above.

Practical Details: Unveiling the Opportunity

Participation in this transformative experience comes at a cost of £2,995 GBP. This covers 14 nights' accommodation, meals, lectures, scientific visits, transportation, certificates, and the social program.
