ACS Invites You to be a Part of FISSION

FISSION is an international science fair that every year brings together young people from different countries to present academic science projects. The event is organized by a select group of ACS (American College of Sofia) students under the guidance of the school’s Administration and Dr. Krasimira Chakarova, a physics teacher at ACS.

The ninth edition of the event will take place on April 12-13, 2024 on the campus of the American College of Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria. Participants are from 5th to 12th grade and come from all over Bulgaria, as well as North Macedonia, Hungary, Turkey, Czech Republic, USA, and Canada.

During the science fair, they present their projects in all spheres of science–biomedical, biological and chemical sciences, ecology and environmental sciences, computer science, mathematics, physics and engineering.

Each project is assessed by a panel of established scientists and experts. After the projects are carefully reviewed and evaluated, the jury awards students with “Best Project” Award or “Honorable Mention” Award in each category.

The event schedule includes campus tours, workshops and lectures for participants and their supervisors by guest speakers and scholars, and various networking opportunities.

We are open on April 13th, 2024 for all guests and visitors who want to enjoy the science project presentation and be a part of our community on this special day!
