Environmental Science

Environmental Science theme for GISUTECH 2020: "Global Environmental Problems and Solutions."

The category of Environmental science analyzes and provides solutions to global environmental problems.

 

GISUTECH Olympiad seeks solutions to problems related to indoor and outdoor air quality; the health effects of air, water, soil, radiation, and noise pollution; pollution management (e.g., systems for early warning or control of polluting incidents); the measurement of pollution; wastewater treatment and remediation; solid waste treatment and remediation; the effects of radiation, global warming, climate change and more.

    GISUTECH  Environmental Science | RULES

  • Application:  A science project can be prepared and submitted by up to two students.

  • Application:  The project description paper detailing are required for complete applications. All projects, winners, must submit a full project description paper (research paper).

  • Application: The project description paper should include: title, student names, school, city and country, abstract, introduction, the goal of the project, methods and experiments, results and discussions, conclusion, and references. The project description paper will be uploaded into an online application. Acceptable file formats for the project paper are doc and docx, PDF and RTF, not exceeding 5 MB in file size. The recommended page limit is 5, with acceptable font sizes 11 or 12 for any font type and page margins one inch or more (2.5 cm) from each side.

  • Application: Your file names must be in English characters.

  • You are allowed to bring your own poster board/presentation, which should be placed on a 40x60-inch table.  The height of the poster board is not restricted. 

  • You are allowed to bring models or prototypes as part of your presentation which is HIGHLY recommended.

  • GISUTECH will provide foam boards sized 40x60 inches (100x150 cm) with a 60-inch table. Your printed work should fit that size foam board (height vs width orientation does not matter).

  • Students should come to the competition with pre-printed materials to prepare their posters. Pins and tape will be provided by GISUTECH Olympiad.

  • Students are allowed to make changes and improve their projects between application and final presentation.

  • The poster should include at least the following sections: introduction, goal, results and discussion, conclusion, and references.

  • Some of the table is equipped with electricity providing 220 V outlet. if you need electricity.

  • Students are advised (not required) to bring multiple copies of their final research paper to distribute to curious viewers.

  • The following items will not be allowed to display: microbial cultures or fungi (live or dead); displays of live animals, preserved vertebrate animals, whether in whole or part (this includes humans); open or concealed flames, matches, or lighters; hazardous chemicals; highly combustible solids, fluids, or gases; sharp items (syringes, needles, knives); controlled substances; and radioactive materials.

  • Proper procedures must be followed in regard to human subjects. When human subjects are used in research (including survey research), they have to be fully informed of any risks and have to give consent to the procedures, in possession of full knowledge of the risks (this is known as informed consent). Informed consent should be obtained for all minors and for adults when more than minimal risk is involved in participating in the project. Minimal risk is defined as the probability of harm or discomfort anticipated in the research.
