Bronze Medal and Silver Award at the Asia-Pacific Conference of Young Scientists in Russia

Nicole Budiman, a Grade 10 student at SPH Sentul City, received a Bronze medal and a Silver award at the Asia-Pacific Conference of Young Scientists (APCYS) held in Yakutsk, Russia, from October 14-20, 2019. Nicole joined the competition with 7 other students from Indonesia. Twelve countries participated in total.

Nicole presented her research titled, “The Enhancement of Fecal Sludge Conversion into Biogas”. Her aim was to investigate the enhancing effects of an electron donor from the methane produced by human feces. Methane is a biogas that can be used as an energy source.

Last year, Nicole won 1st place in the Young Scientists Competition with her research. She then proceeded to the National Young Research Competition and the International Conference of Young Scientists. The APCYS is the culmination of all these competitions. Nicole shared her journey with us:

“Starting from the YSC regional round held in Bandung in October 2018, I never expected to receive these awards. Even after winning 1st place in the regional round, and then 2nd place in the national round, going to Russia for this year’s APCYS and winning the bronze medal as well as the silver poster award was surreal. More than the awards, it was the experience that is my real reward. I had the opportunity to make connections with fellow aspiring scientists from all over Indonesia and the Asia Pacific, as well as honorable professors and Science experts.  I experienced a new culture while in Russia, as well as the cultures of the other participating countries. I am so grateful to the Lord for giving me this wonderful opportunity and privilege.”

We hope that this outstanding achievement will encourage our student-scientists at SPH schools to pursue science more diligently for the advancement of Indonesia. Once again, congratulations Nicole!
