The festival is part of a cooperation project between the Ministry of Education and Training’s Secondary Education Department and Kenan, and has been held in Hanoi since 2018.

Organised for Bac Ninh students for the first time, the festival served as a playground where students had opportunities to experience various STEM activities, helping them improve soft skills such as leadership, cooperation, communications and counterargument, while nurturing their STEM passion.

Besides, the festival offered a chance for teachers and students to exchange experience to improve the quality of STEM learning and teaching.

As for Vu Duc Hoang, a student from Tien An Secondary School in Bac Ninh city, the festival was special as it encouraged him to create more useful products for life.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Thi Ngoc Diep from Quang Phu Secondary School in Luong Tai district, said she hoped similar STEM festivals will be organised to equip students with necessary soft skills./.
