The Ministry of Science and Technology is organizing an event where students get to do science experiments while taking a train around Taiwan. The activity is in its fifth year. It’s so popular that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, 18 teams of students from 10 schools will participate this year from October 26 to 29. They are doubling the number of cars on the train to eight cars to accommodate all the students.
The purpose of the event is to help young school students get involved in science and technology and learn about its relevance to our lives. The ministry hopes the activity can inspire more young people to be interested in scientific research and development when they grow up.
