LIONS OF SCIENCE is a German registered association and a new internet platform aiming to find and award prizes to Kenyan students with the most creative and innovative projects. Students can submit scientific projects by choosing from different categories like Health, Environment, ICT or Engineering and benefit from the network, engaging with a world-wide audience. The projects should enrich Kenyan society or the international community and contribute towards improving standards of living. A jury will decide on a shortlist of projects.
