The Junior Academy of Sciences offers Ukrainian families the funny and cognitive competition. Its new project is the science-popular game "Scientific Family".

According to the conditions, two families must demonstrate their knowledge and intelligence in each competition of the project. Participants do simple experiments in physics, chemistry, and math, with necessary explanations of their essence, and also they answer tricky questions from scientists i.e jurors. The winners defend the name of the most intelligent Ukrainian family in next contest. Those who lose are entitled to the rematch.

Who can participate in these games? Any Ukrainian family with a child in age from 9 to 15. In addition to parents, other members of the family can join.

The first scientific family battle took place on October 6, 2018, in State Polytechnic Museum of NTUU "Igor Sikorsky KPI". Families of Oleksandra Miklukhina (15 years old) and Vitalina Ishchenko (11 years old) met in the competition.

Firstly, participants received the task to do scientific experiments and explain their scientific essence. While the families were thinking, the fans joined the fight: they needed to guess what scientific experiment should be held to complete the witty task.

The competition was closely followed by the members of the jury: a physicist - corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine O. Kordiuk (Institute for Metal Physics of the National Academy of Sciences), a mathematician – PhD in physics and mathematics I. Yegorchenko (Institute of Mathematics of the National Academy of Sciences) and a chemist – PhD in engineering A. Lapynsky (NTUU "Igor Sikorsky KPI").

Creative presentation of the vision of science by the families was also interesting because the participants accomplished this homework with the help of poetry and fine arts. And in the end, there was a game in which families built towers on the principles of height, stability, and aesthetic appearance. So the jury evaluated also the engineering decisions of the teams.

The scientific struggle was equal, but the family of Vitalina Ishchenko won with the slightest advantage. Congratulations to the winners and wish them success in the next game, which will take place on November 10th.

Join our competitions to compete for the title of the smartest science family in Ukraine!
