In celebration of Koç University's 25th anniversary, College of Sciences and College of Engineering in collaboration with the Communications Office hosted the first Koç University Science Fair on May 17th. The fair was a full day of different science exhibitions and hands-on activities which engaged visitors with experiments, demonstrations, and lab tours. Student volunteers and clubs also participated in the fair. High schools from İstanbul and Turkey visiting our campus had a chance to participate and enjoy their time. The fair was a highly promising engagement opportunity we hope to continue for many years to come. The idea of the Koç University Science Fair developed from the annual Science and Technology Day, organized by the Colleges of Sciences and Engineering . In its first year, devised as one of our 25th anniversary celebrations, the Science Fair had a very successful start, surely establishing a new tradition certain to flourish and expand more in the years to come. This project is also a very nice extension of our science-for-the-public project KURIOUS, corresponding directly with our mission to reach more audiences and help them love science. With Engineering and KWORKS Lab Visits, Science Demonstrations at the Odeon, KURIOUS activity desk in the Koç Square, Marbling Student Club doing workshops and Computer Student Club doing a hackathon, it was such a fitting day of celebration of science at our school.
