Limitless 2023: Science Fair

Science Fair logo

A few members from the Natural Sciences division have collaborated in planning the inaugural Science Fair, in conjunction with the Limitless Conference. The aim of it is to equip the students with knowledge about careers in science and provide them a chance to present their research on their desired fields. Based on a survey conducted among science students, three career fields are selected: Pharmacy, Nursing, and Environmental Studies.

A guest speaker for each field will be invited to provide information and answer student questions regarding their respective career. Student poster presentations will be judged, and prizes will be awarded.
