SA-IPSE successfully held the first online Science Festival with the theme “Science for and with technology: Innovate the invention”. Science Festival 2021 is a national science competition for junior high school students. This competition is participated by junior high school students throughout Indonesia, consisting of 27 Science Quiz participants, 24 Science Story Telling participants, and 7 Exploravision teams. Through the Science Festival 2021, we hope that Indonesian students can develop their potential, interests, insights, and creativity in the field of science. In addition, this activity also provides opportunities for students to create new innovations in the field of science.
At the beginning of the activity, the event was opened by Dr. Sandey Tantra Paramita, S.Si., M.Pd as the Head of the Division of Cooperation and Student Organization Development.
