Science Project Regulation for ASEAN Student

INTRODUCTION

PT. Pertamina, the largest Indonesian state-owned enterprises in the field of energy and petro chemistry, shows its enormous responsibility to contribute in the developments of the nation by holding a Science Olympiad (OSN-PERTAMINA) which has been running annually since 2008. This year, PT. Pertamina along with Universitas Indonesia and supported by other universities in Indonesia, will again hold OSN-PERTAMINA for the 8th time. OSN-PERTAMINA 2015 is categorized into “Theory Category” and “Science Project Category”. Both of them are presumed to keep up the “Earth Pals Program” of PT. Pertamina in forming an outstanding young generation.

The Science Project Category is a science competition for undergraduate students of universities in Indonesia as well as top universities in ASEAN region. It is made with the purpose of letting students express them selves as they will compete to demonstrate their innovations. Thus, we can count on them to be the back bones that will shore up the independence of the nation in the future even in this era of globalization.

A science project in this Olympiad means the students/team (maximum three students for each team) first elaborate their innovative ideas and solutions and then followed by the creation of a concept which can take the form of a mockup, a working miniature design, a prototype, a functional materials, or a process/methods so long as it associated with the theme of “NEW AND RENEWABLE ENERGY”. This project paper should be written in English. The organization through the referee/committee will select the students/teams which are eligible to participate in the grand final round. The participants must be able to explain, defend and represent their project both in basic theory and in practice. The written and spoken language during the final round is English.
