Science Presentations by Maltese participants of the EU Contest for Young Scientists
Wednesday 16th December 2015 at 6.30 p.m. at St Aloysius Sixth Form Hall
“Today more than ever, we need our youngsters to study and be imaginative; we need them to think global, yet to have an impact in their communities; in the meantime if they are asking themselves how they can make a difference in society, these youngsters should consider science as the ideal way”. These are the powerful words of Italian Minister of Education, University and Research Stefania Giannini which summed up the 27th edition of the European Union Contest for Young Scientists held last September in Milan, which left its participants in awe of how science and innovation can successfully respond to the big challenges of today.
The EU Contest for Young Scientists provided inspiration to Enrico Zammit Lonardelli, Jessica Bonnici, Nicole Grech Flores, Laura Marie Farrugia and Gabriel Tabone who represented Malta at the Science contest. They will be presenting their science projects on Wednesday 16th September at St Aloysius Sixth Form Hall at 6.30 p.m. The event is free and open for the general public.
Enrico Zammit Lonardelli’s presentation entitled ‘Can an apple a day keep asthma away? will explain how the effects of the common house dust mite, one of the major causes of year-round asthma, could be dealt with and how to prevent this respiratory condition from developing in the lungs. Gabriel Tabone and Laura Farrugia’s presentation entitled Can Electromagnets Cure Cancer? will give an insight on how a system can alleviate predetermined cancerous cells. Nicole Grech Flores and Jessica Bonnici’s presentation entitled An In Vitro Study to measure antioxidants activity will conclude that those living on plant based,pescetarian diets are at a lesser risk of certain fatal diseases and have increased life expectancy as a result of these antioxidant components.
