The Turkish schools in Indonesia kicked off its annual Indonesia Science Project Olympiads (ISPO), the largest science contest of the nation. The contest, in its sixth year, saw a huge participation of the Indonesian students.

One thousand 202 project entries in total from across the country were received months ahead of the event. 160 of them qualified for the finals passing a jury of eminent names. The finalists will be ultimately judged by academics from the top five universities of the country. Top 25 projects will receive their awards at a ceremony this Thursday and represent Indonesia in international science olympiads.

Ramazan Cingil, ISPO coordinator, said they are organizing the event in cooperation with the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Institute of Sciences (LIPI). Many scintillating projects are being exhibited at the event. Insulation products out of bamboo, power-generating treadmills and clean energy projects are just a few of them.
