The Grand Finale of Our Regional Science Fair “Science and Me” in Struga


May 22nd in Struga was absolutely amazing! At the primary school “Brakja Miladinovci” in Struga, we celebrated the grand finale of our regional Science Fair and hosted the 4th Science Fair under the Johnson Matthey “Science and Me” community impact program.

Over 30 exceptionally talented sixth-grade students, guided by their natural sciences teachers, presented their innovative projects to an enthusiastic audience of more than 150 peers from the host school and other local schools. These young scientists came from:

  • Primary School “Brakja Miladinovci” in Struga, under the mentorship of teacher Shronjza Tela
  • Primary School “Pere Toshev” from Rosoman, under the mentorship of teacher Vesna Okardova
  • Primary School “7 Marsi” from Chelopek, under the mentorship of teacher Ajtene Ademi
  • Primary School “Emin Duraku” from the village Bukovikj in the municipality of Saraj, Skopje, under the mentorship of teacher Semial Sinani

The students’ projects reflected a deep understanding of scientific principles and a creative approach to problem-solving, impressing everyone in attendance.

We are incredibly grateful to the “Brakja Miladinovci” school for their warm hospitality and open-heartedness. Their support and enthusiasm set the perfect stage for this celebration of young scientific minds.
