The 56th National Primary and High School Science Fair was held in National Central University in Taoyuan over a five day period, during which the creative science projects of Kinmen students shined brightly, and the four works entered into the junior high school and senior high school divisions hit a “home run,” earning glory for Kinmen.
The Kinmen County Team was assembled by the Education Department and received abundant results in the national science fair this year. Award winning works include:
National Kinmen Senior High School’s “Layer upon layer – An interesting characteristic of the area of bicentric polygon” won “second place” in the senior high school math division (by Li Meng-Lung and Chuang Yao-Chun; advisor: Yang Yu-Hsing).
Jinsha Junior High School’s “Realm of fruit aroma” won the “best local teaching material award” of the junior high school chemistry division (by Chen Pi-Yao, Wang Kai-Shen, and Chen Kuan-Min; advisor: Chien Pei-Yi).

National Kinmen Senior High School’s “Mystery of light emitting diodes” won the “best creativity award” of the senior high school engineering division (by Chen Wei-Heng; advisors: Li Yu-Hsien and Li Che-Cheng).
The Education Department indicated that contestants had to pass through numerous tests before being recommended by their county or city government; the science fair of Kinmen County was held on April 23rd this year, and 155 works competed in the event. Six works were selected into the nationals, including Jinhu Elementary School’s “Preliminary Exploration of the Feasibility of Magnetic Force-assisted Vertical Wind Power Generator,” Jinding Elementary Schools “12 Procedures for Finding the Golden Ratio of Seven Crusts,” Jinsha Junior High School’s “Realm of fruit aroma,” National Kinmen Senior High School’s “Layer upon layer – An interesting characteristic of the area of bicentric polygon,” National Kinmen Senior High School’s “Kinmen Youth’s Perception of Menstruation,” and National Kinmen Senior High School’s “Mystery of light emitting diodes.” The science works utilize local materials and shined in the national contest, winning four major awards, winning the praises of Kinmen residents and driving the development of local science education.
The National Primary and High School Science Fair has been held by the Ministry of Education since 1960. The purpose of the science fair is to fairly and openly evaluate the research results of primary and high school teachers and students in mathematics and natural sciences. The competitions involves a document review, posters, and oral communication, and has many levels with works from primary and high schools around the country, going through a local science fair in each county and city, and outstanding works competing in the national science fair. It is an event representative of primary and high school science education, with increasingly better quantity and quality of works, cultivating multitudes of scientific research talent that have accumulated a abundant scientific research results. At present, over 15,000 works from schools of all levels enter science fairs each year, over 5,500 are selected into the local science fair, over 100,000 teachers and students engage in scientific research for the science fairs each year, and in the over 50 years since the event has been held, it has raised interest in scientific research among countless primary and high school teachers and students, cultivating many outstanding scientific research talents that have made extraordinary contribution to science education. This year (2016) a total of 393 works entered the 56th National Primary and High School Science Fair (finals), in which 26 works were in the elementary school division, 120 works were in the junior high school division, and 146 works were in the senior high school division.
