Now in its second year, the event drew more than 90 entrants from 20 countries in its inaugural year. “We hope that the competition will get more high school students interested in science and science writing in college,” says DUJS President Yoo Jung Kim ’14. “This event is also an opportunity to showcase Dartmouth’s commitment to and strength in the sciences.
The event is unique, and so is its host organization. As its name implies, the DUJS is run by undergraduates, including an editorial group of 24 and a dozen other students who are involved in writing, design, layout, and editing. Guidance and counsel come from an advisory board that includes 12 scientists, engineers, and other professionals from across the campus. High school students and international equivalents are invited to submit an essay about the recent effects and future promises of science in our society,” contest organizers say. They encourage entrants to write about particular discoveries, events, or individuals from science in current events, or present a more general account of the changes and developments in the world of science today. The deadline for submissions is September 30. The present era is the era of science. Science has undoubtedly done a great service to mankind. Man, a rational being, has been curious to explore mysteries of nature and this led to many discoveries being made in various part of the world. But he is never satisfied with the acquired knowledge and is always keen to unravelle mysteries of the universe. He has conquered the land and air. His incredible lust for knowledge has revolutionised human life and raised the standard of life. He was able to invent innumerable ways of making his life comfortable and happy. Every sphere of life has been revolutionised by science.
