What is SCORE?!?

SCORE! is designed to promote senior high school students’ hands-on science education and interest in entrepreneurship, as well as to support English language education and the goal of becoming a global citizenship.

Join us at SCORE!

If you've ever wondered how the world works, you might be able to use your curiosity to solve a business or social problem. Develop your new research ideas at SCORE!

Share your passion for your research

Tell us in a clear, logical, and passionate way how you came up with your research topic and how you tested it. Be free with your ideas, thorough in your verification, and scientific in your approach.

Appeal to an international audience
