2017第三屆亞太科學資優學生論壇自7月1日(星期六)起至7月6日(星期四)為期六天,將在國立臺灣師範大學隆重登場。國立臺灣師範大學宋曜廷副校長表示,2017亞太科學資優學生論壇共有15個國家或地區組隊報名參加,主要是來自亞洲太平洋地區,分別是香港、印度、印尼、日本、菲律賓、馬來西亞、新加坡、泰國、越南、大韓民國、沙烏地阿拉伯、俄羅斯、加拿大、丹麥以及臺灣,共有93名學生及34名教師。每個國家或地區原則上由2名帶隊老師及6名學生組隊報名。今年度參與論壇的國家、學生及老師人數比前兩屆來得多,沙烏地阿拉伯教育部並派2位資優教育司長前來參加。今年的論壇活動可謂盛況空前,來自各國的師生將齊聚一堂,針對「未來科學家的想像力」(Imagination and Future Scientists)議題,相互討論合作及交流,並展現多元智慧及創意。

本屆亞太科學資優學生論壇籌備會主席,國立臺灣師範大學特殊教育學系郭靜姿教授表示,此次論壇配合政府積極發展南向政策,以及配合「國際資優兒童日」( International Day of the Gifted),讓各國資優教育教授及師生能透過分組討論及跨國合作,建立無國界友誼。這是臺灣第三次舉辦科學資優論壇,希望能增加我國國際能見度及影響力、提升科學素養、暢通國際交流管道以及開展師生國際視野。

六天五夜的活動中,課程規劃包含:專題演講、學生實作、教師論壇、成果發表和文化參訪等。論壇活動期間全程以英文進行討論與互動,也讓來自各國科學資優學生有展示才能的舞臺。開幕式預計7月1日(星期六)15:00在國立臺灣師範大學舉行,屆時將有15國/地區學生的文化表演,相信各國學生一定能充分展現各國/地區文化特色,精彩可期。7月2日(星期日)上午邀請到國際知名的國立自然科學博物館孫維新館長擔任專題主講者,講題是「探索那最後的疆界--將人類發展成跨行星物種的努力」。希望藉由良師演講以啟迪科學創意與社會關懷,並期待學生在實作過程中能夠構思科技在生活及社會之運用,也可激發出更多有利於未來的創意與智慧,以培育優秀的科學人才。下午則有教師交流座談會,由6位教授引言,讓與會教師能激盪未來交流合作機會。7月4日(星期二)及7月5日(星期三)上午的各國教師論壇所討論議題是“How to infuse imagination into science problem solving”,由各國教師分享教學經驗,以能將高層思考融入教學中。

Infusing Imagination into Science Problem Solving

Asia-Pacific Forum for Science Talented (APFst) hosted by K-12 Education Administration, Ministry of Education, Taiwan and organized by National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) is designed to provide middle and high school students with opportunities to get to know each other, showcase their talent, and work collaboratively. Targeted participants are middle high school talented students who are aged 13-16. Each participating country or region is invited to send a delegation consisting of a team of up to two teachers and six students. English is used as the conference language.

The APFst event has been held twice in the summer so far. This year’s APFst will operate again at the NTNU campus from Saturday 1 July to Thursday 6 July 2017 with stimulating speakers and interesting activities.

The 2017 APFst is much larger, with participants from the Asia-Pacific region and the world. The event will bring together 93 students and 34 teachers from 15 countries and regions, including Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Russia, Vietnam, and Taiwan. Two senior officials from Ministry of Education in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will attend the forum this year.

Professor Ching-Chih Kuo, Department of Special Education, NTNU and the Chairperson of the APFst Organizing Committee, says that supporting the New Southern Policy of the government and International Day of the Gifted, the 2017 APFst is a possibility of cross-border cooperation and cross-border friendship that will be established and strengthened during group discussions.

The 2017 APFst has the theme “Imagination and Future Scientists” and the program had an array of activities highlighting this theme. For example, the opening ceremony will take place at R202 of General Building, NTNU at 15:00 on Saturday 1 July. Don’t miss the multicultural show at the opening ceremony and we believe that students from different countries will be creative in the way showing their amazing performance. The keynote speech on the second day, 2 July, will be by Director-General Professor Wei-Hsin Sun, National Museum of Natural Science on the topic of “Exploring the Final Frontier- An Effort for Humans to Become a Multiplanetary Species”. The speech is designed to widen the participants’ perspectives and diversify their views on natural science. The multinational team-based hands-on project will allow student delegates to engage in discussion related to science for social concern, and to help familiarize them with the roles of global citizens. The teacher symposium in the afternoon of 2 July with 6 invited speakers provides opportunities to strengthen international relations and encourage cooperation. The teacher forum session will let the teacher delegates share ideas and show how they infuse imagination into their teaching practices.
