This is a unique office, perhaps found only in Light International School (LIS). This office organizes our students’ participation in all local and international project competitions.Our students have so far participated in project competitions in Turkey, Romania, Netherlands, USA, Georgia, UAE/Dubai, Indonesia, Nigeria, China, Tanzania, and Kenya.
LIS students participate in different project competitions (Olympiads) in different countries every year. Indeed our students have represented Kenya abroad in various competitions, and won over 60 medals (Gold, Silver and Bronze).
How we prepare our students for project Olympiads
Participating in project competitions, especially at an international level, requires students to put in extra effort in academic work, research and improvement of communication skills. This is a major part of what we focus on as we prepare our students for these competitions. In addition, we help would-be participants in the following ways:
Provision of the necessary equipment
Guidance in project research
Assistance in conception and development of project ideas
Preparation and presentation of projects.
Arrangement of all relevant travel plans for participation in the events
Organization of Project competitions
Apart from participating in local and international project competitions, LIS also organizes and hosts international project competitions here in Kenya. The best known of these are:
