18 high school pupils head to Swedish Research Championships

The effect of the menstrual cycle on performance, the aerodynamics of paper planes, and the temperature of the Baltic Sea – the range of subjects was very broad when one of seven regional semi-finals in the Swedish Research Championships run by the Unga Forskare association for young researchers were held on 25 February.

A total of 18 pupils from the Gothenburg area qualified for the final. The final took place virtually on 29 March and saw three of the projects from the Gothenburg semi-final receive prizes, meaning they were selected for Sweden’s national team of young researchers for 2021. The full list of winners is available at ungaforskare.se (only in Swedish).
