Science on the Move 2023

We are moving into the seventh edition of our nation-wide class competition!

High school classes from all over Switzerland will battle it out for a top prize of a Science Week in Arles (southern France). The program promotes and requires the skills of a creative group of high school students. May the best school class with the most scientific curiosity and enthusiasm win.

What is Science on the Move?

Launched in 2011, Science on the Move is a biannual, nationwide science competition for upper secondary school classes in Switzerland. The programme promotes scientific curiosity, enthusiasm and teamwork. The competition is open to schools in all regions of Switzerland. Around 3,700 students have participated in the tournament since its launch.

The first phase of the competition is dedicated to research and experimental work and documentation of the results. Only the ten best classes proceed then to the second phase where they prepare a creative stage performance presenting their results and experiences.

The classes will prepare their contributions in their classroom, at school or wherever they see fit.
The Final Event will take place at Roche in Basel/Kaiseraugst in June 2023. The winning class is then selected by a jury of experts from science, education and industry.

Please note that since the film was made, the focus of the competition has shifted. Instead of performing experiments on a specified subject, student teams are asked to develop their own project on a more or less specified topic. Of course, this may also include the performance of experiments. The film, however, illustrates nicely the spirit of the competition and gives a short summary of its structure.

Watch the playlist with the winners of the Best Performance Award from 2013 onwards.
