Wisdom begins with Wonder: the Swiss Youth in Science National Contest is back for its 56th edition and invites you to Lugano on 22 and 23 April 2022.

More than 100 young finalists from high schools throughout Switzerland will present their research projects before a committee of experts who, after careful evaluation, will award honourable mentions and special prizes. The innovative projects have been proposed and developed by motivated and enthusiastic young students throughout 2021, who have turned creative ideas into detailed research that is finally ready to be shown to the public.

The Swiss Youth in Science, together with Università della Svizzera italiana and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland, invite interested parties to be fascinated and inspired by the content and ambience of this exhibition, which will be held on the East Campus of USI SUPSI.

  • Friday, 22 April, from 10:30 to 12:45 and from 14:00 to 5:30 pm
  • Saturday, 23 April 2022, from 9 am to 11 am

The projects in the competition cover seven disciplinary fields, from biology to chemistry, from mathematics to physics, to art, literature, philosophy and architecture.


More details about the competition are available on the event's official website.
