By being involved in YSK, teachers and the schools will notice long-term benefits. It is a great way to get students inspired and have fun with subjects that may be viewed as being a bit ‘dry’. Please familiarise yourself with the rules and submission criteria available on the student information page.
Teacher facilities at the exhibition
When you arrive at KICC, please register at the Teacher Reception Desk, where you will receive your Exhibition Pass and exhibition packet. It is imperative that you wear this pass at all times for security reasons.
There will be a designated teachers’ corner in the Exhibition hall. Refreshments will be served throughout the day in the designated teacher’s area.
Please note that students must not take down their project or leave the hall before 5:00 pm on the days of the exhibition. The event will be open to the general public on Saturday, 3rd August from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm and on Tuesday from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
Why not celebrate your school’s participation in the competition by encouraging your colleagues to bring a class along. Or if you are not participating this year why not bring your class along to experience the buzz around the event and maybe that will encourage them to enter next year’s competition.

The students you accompany to the Exhibition are your primary focus and they should feel a strong sense of support and security. The following is some advice on how to ensure this happens.
- Adults should set good examples and serve as role models not only for students that they accompany but for all young people at the Exhibition.
- Adults should know where their students are at all times and students should know where their teacher/parent is at all times.
- Adults should oversee project set-up and be available to assist students with any complications that may arise.
- It is important that an adult should be available to cover or to arrange for cover for students, especially those entered in the Individual section. All students should be given breaks from their stands.
