The Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) held a ceremony in Hanoi on May 9 to meet with 16 Vietnamese students who will attend the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF 2014) in the US, from May 11-16.

This year’s Vietnamese competitors will bring a number of topics to the event from six fields including science, technology, and environment. 

They mostly come from the Hanoi-Amsterdam High School, Specialized School and Natural Science Gifted High School (National University in Hanoi), Ho Chi Minh City's Le Hong Phong High School, Tran Dai Nghia High School, and Trung Hoa High School.

The students successfully beat hundreds of opponents across the country to earn their place at the fair and some of them won prizes in a competition for youth in Taiwan in 2014.

Addressing the event, MoET Deputy Minister Nguyen Vinh Hien said that this year, Intel ISEF 2014 will attract about 1,600 students from around the world covering a wide range of scientific topics in various fields relevant to daily life.

He expresses his hope that after the competition, the candidates will learn experiences from international friends to further develop their studies in the future.

Last year, Vietnamese students won two fourth prizes at the 2013 Intel ISEF in the fields of electricity and mechanics, and materials and biotechnology.

They are Tran Ngoc Chau, Nguyen Phuong Duy and Truong Nhut Cuong from the Le Hong Phong Gifted High School in Ho Chi Minh City, and Vu Mai Huong, Hoang Trong Nam Anh and Do Thuy Linh from the Hanoi-Amsterdam Gifted High School in Hanoi.
