 The Education Students Society (ESS) and the Science and Mathematics Education Center (SMEC) are organizing the Twenty Sixth Annual Science, Mathematics and Technology Fair on the weekend of March 28 and 29, 2020 at the American University of Beirut. The Fair provides students from schools throughout Lebanon with the opportunity to share scientific, mathematical and technological projects with their peers from other schools.

The Fair aims to encourage and reinforce schools' efforts in:

  • developing students' scientific and mathematical inquiry and critical thinking skills
  • providing a relevant, hands-on, out-of-class dimension to science and mathematics instruction
  • promoting creativity, initiative, collaborative skills, and independent thinking among students
  • encouraging school/parent/student involvement in the learning process
