SAP- The Eighth SAP Science Olympiad

Dear Colleague,

The Science Association of Pakistan (SAP) is organizing its Eighth Science Olympiad for the students of class VIII on April 9, 2011 at The Aga Khan University - Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED), Karachi.

The Olympiad is a part of our continual efforts to make teaching and learning of science enriching and rewarding experience for both students and teachers. Since the year 2011 is being celebrated as the International Year of Chemistry (IYC), SAP will also focus the IYC in this Olympiad.

As per the programme participating students will have an opportunity to perform a “Scientific Drama” in the following categories:

1. Historical perspective of chemistry with future linkages such as; time line, Muslim chemists.
2. Chemistry for life (chemistry at home and in industries i.e. chemical in medicines, agriculture, farming, transport, textile, etc.)
3. Colorful Chemistry / Nature of Chemistry
The drama will be based on Humour/Art/Act/Dialogue. The winners would be awarded with shields and certificate of participation would be awarded to all the participants.

An introductory workshop for providing guidelines for the Olympiad would be held at AKU-IED for which date will be communicated to the registered schools later on.

Please fill the attached form and send it along with the registration fee of Rs. 1,500/- (Cash or Pay Order) in the name of AKU-IED to PTAN Office by February 19, 2011.

If you have any further query, kindly contact PTAN Office or email us at, or Phone # 6826991-4 Ext # 3204-3205.
