The theme of this year’s Science Fair is “Living With Climate Change”.

The Fair will kick off on July 28th 2014, ending on the 26th of September, 2014 .

The Fair is part of efforts to empower the youth and to encourage the pursuit of knowledge through education. This is also an opportunity for Bluesky in the governments’ efforts through the education sector to highlight Science & Technology as an attractive career path for the youth to endeavor.

BlueSky’s Country Manager, Toleafoa Douglas Creevey, remarked that this sponsorship was very important to BlueSky as it is a way of ensuring that the young ‘Bluesky Scientists’ participating are given a chance to showcase their innovation and creativity through Science & Technological projects.

“BlueSky’s sponsorship for this year’s fair is valued at $30,000,” he said. “We believe this is money well spent in ensuring that through the Science Fair we can empower the future Bluesky Scientists to have a voice and a chance to show what they are made of at this year’s Science Fair. “There will also be an opportunity for the public to support the ‘Bluesky Scientists’ that will make the Bluesky National Final Science Fair by placing their votes for those nominated. More details to follow.”

The ‘Bluesky Scientists’ or students from secondary schools all across the country will be participating in the Science Fair which focuses solely on climate change and its effects on our islands and way of life. The theme of this year’s Science Fair ‘Living with climate change’ is a priority issue to be highlighted at this year’s UN SIDS Conference that Samoa will play host to for the first time.
