The science

The Science Symposium is one of our major  annual events in Kilifi. At the symposium students representing 30 schools within Kilifi County compete in a science quiz to win fantastic prizes. Schools are ranked according to their overall performance in the quizzes and tasks during the symposium.

Science and Engineering Fair Projects

The Schools Engagement Programme hosts groups of science club students from different schools. During these sessions students present their science project ideas which they have prepared for science and engineering competition to a panel of researchers. The KEMRI staff members give advice to students on how to improve their project ideas. The projects are in a range of scientific fields including agriculture, biology, mathematics, physics, engineering, environmental studies, transport and energy, applied technology and ICT.
