Welcome Message of CASTIC2019

Dear 34th CASTIC Participants,

On behalf of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), it’s my great pleasure and honor to welcome you all to Macao SAR., China for the 34th China Adolescents Science and Technology Innovation Contest (CASTIC), and to host the largest and most prestigious event in Asia for the best and brightest young scientists from the world at large.

This year we have more than 200 international participants from about 50 countries and region on site. Congratulations to these young scientists qualified for the 34th CASTIC. I’m proud of your daring and talents to innovate. You are the innovation ambassadors representing your countries and region. When you come back home, I wish that you could be the ambassadors of CASTIC and of the friendship you got during the week-long event.   

To team leaders, CASTIC will present a wide variety of scientific based visits, colorful culture experiences and forums rich in STEM, as well as the connections with other participants.

Science and technology have no country boundaries and scientific innovations are truly international endeavors. As the driving force to promote science literacy in China, CAST would like to present unique opportunities for the global community to establish international friendships and future scientific collaborations

At last but not the least, I would also like to give my sincere appreciation and thanks to government departments, organizations, my fellow staffs and volunteers who make the 34th CASTIC possible and success.

I wish you all every success during the 34th CASTIC and beyond!
