PROTOCOL FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL SCIENTIFIC COMPETITON
As Einstein emphasized: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
So the first important point of the competition is for the participants to show good understanding and to present clearly (easy to understand) the problems and solutions of a medical condition to a committee (of which three of out four are not medical personnel). The second important point is for the participants to present how to apply these information to other medical or in non medical fields. This is called translational medicine which defined as a rapidly growing discipline in biomedical research and aims to expedite the discovery of new diagnostic tools and treatments by using a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative, “bench-to-bedside” approach.
The third important point of the competition is for the participants to present innovative and provocative ideas using the methodology or the medical problem just presented. If the participants have no new ideas on these problems, she or he can select any new, innovative and provocative ideas on medical issues to present them to the committee.
