SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATION AND PROJECT
As a fundamental part of science, the 6th Challenge encourages students to comunicate and disseminate the knowledge acquired during the BIYSC. We want them to be ambitious in their future careers and, above all, we want them to be prepared with the necessary skills to overcome everyting they will face in their future academic and professional careers.
For this purpose, participants must prepare an oral presentation on the results obtained during the research project performed at BIYSC, which will be presented in groups on the last day of the program.
In addition, after the program concludes, each student will be entrusted to work on his/her own scientific project encompassing a topic related to the project performed during BIYSC and will have to write a report on it. This task will be supervised by the researchers leading the BIYSC project, and thus students will be guided throughout the whole process of development of their own research. The students' research should be based on an original scientific question. Students will have to investigate the background, the newest developments, pose their own hypothesis, develop the materials and methods, analyze the results, and discuss their significance and contribution to the scientific scope. Finally, the report must also include ethical considerations on the matter.
In acknowledgment of having overcome the first 6 Challenges, BIYSC recognizes those students who have shown a high commitment in their participation, an outstanding performance during the two weeks of the program and in the achievement of the Challenges, and developed the best scientific projects. To this end, Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation awards the two most committed students of the program with the ‘BIYSC Be Passionate With Attitude Award’.
