The 'Youth' section

About the section

The section is organised by the City of Toruń and the Board of Education in Bydgoszcz. The event will summarise three nationwide educational competitions organised as part of the celebrations of the 550th anniversary of Nicolaus Copernicus' birth:

  • The "School of Copernicus' Friends" project
  • Competition for teachers in the scenario of classes on Nicolaus Copernicus
  • National Knowledge Contest on Nicolaus Copernicus.

The aim of the section is not only to celebrate the 550th anniversary of Nicolaus Copernicus' birth but also to develop pupils' talents and passions, to arouse and develop their interest in history, astronomy, physics, geography, mathematics, medicine and economics. The organisers also aimed to support the development of students' talents, promote their achievements, and support teachers and schools.

The event is held exclusively in Polish.
