The inspiring events of Thailand-Japan Student Science Fair 2015 and the Thailand-Japan Student ICT Fair 2016 marked the advancement in science education of both countries. Moreover, the said activities fostered the creativity and scientific awareness as well as technological innovation amongst Thai and Japanese youths.
Seeing their considerable benefits, Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools organize the Thailand-Japan Student Science Fair 2018 which will once again unite hundreds of high school students and teachers from Thailand and Japan who have a real passion for Mathematics, Science and Technology.
This event is funded by The Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC), Ministry of Education, Thailand, with support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan.

Normally, a magic square is a n x n square grid (where n is the number of cells on each side) that contains equal number of cells in column and row.
Within each cell, there is a distinct number that is not repeated to numbers in other cells such that the sum of all numbers in each column, row and diagonal has the same value. This sum is called “magic constant” of the magic square.
The magic square of order n is an arrangement of n2 numbers, usually distinct integers, in a square. The example of magic square of order 3 is as follows:
It can be seen that: The sum of numbers on each row is 8+1+6 = 15, 3+5+7 = 15 and 4+9+2 = 15.
The sum of numbers on each column is 8+3+4 = 15, 1+5+9 = 15 and 6+7+2 = 15.
The sum of numbers on each diagonal is 8+5+2 = 15, 4+5+6 = 15. Therefore, the magic constant of this square table is 15.
All of these is a normal magic square but in this Mathematics zone, non-normal magic square will be done. The main task of this activity therefore is to find the magic constant for non-normal magic square. It is another fun way of learning the concepts of number, an operations in algebra, and to practice solving new problems through the magic square game.
World Trade Building Challenge
Students will enjoy with STEM activity in the topic of “World Trade Building Challenge” by designing and creating with the mechanical equilibrium concept. Unlimited thinking can be created and used in this zone.
Chemical Powered Car
Chemical reactions produce phase changes (gases, liquids, and solids) that can make a car drive. Several factors affect how far the car can go. In this session, students will be challenged to apply the principles of stoichiometry, changes in chemical reactions and engineering design to make the car go the farthest. Students will design a car that is powered solely by a chemical reaction and can travel the farthest.
Forensic Science Investigation
The popularity of such shows as CSI or Bones has increased interest in forensic science and its applications for many students. The activity is an inquiry that students will investigate about fingerprinting, chemical analyses and blood spatter. The resulting information can be used to solve a crime and determine the guilty suspect.
Robot? Would you like to control it? Well, this Robot Zone will give you a chance to learn how to program a robot via a mobile device, perhaps an iPad. Puzzle will be given in order to assembly a robot. The fundamental command will be taught. Examples will be shown. Then it’s time for you. Challenge!!

Twelve Princess Chulabhorn Science High Schools (PCSHS) were established in honor of Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn to commemorate her 36th birthday in 1993. Prof. Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn is the youngest daughter of His Late Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit of Thailand.
She has been an instructor in Chemistry at Mahidol University since 1985. She is also a member of the President's Council of the University of Tokyo.
Being Thailand's leading Super Science High Schools around the country, only students with outstanding academic achievements in Mathematics and Science are selected to study at PCSHS. Not only do they utilize specialized and intensive curricula in mathematics and science emphasizing on research activities, but also they have developed academic cooperation with twelve Super Science High Schools (SSHs) in Japan. The cooperation has included online communication and students/teachers exchange, which led to collaborative researches.
The TJ-SSF 2018 will take a big step towards the collaborative learning and teaching, and thus building closer and stronger collaboration in gifted education in Mathematics and Science between the two countries.
Super Science High Schools (SSH Schools) are senior high schools that prioritize Science, Technology and Mathematics and in so doing these schools will receive the SSH designation awarded by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The program was launched as part of its "Science Literacy Enhancement Initiatives" in 2002.
SSH schools with this status receive increased funding and are encouraged to develop links with universities and other academic institutions. Selected high schools are expected to develop curricula based on Science and Mathematics in cooperation with universities or research institutes.
In 2002, the first year of operation, 26 out of 77 applicant schools were awarded SSH status. As of the 2006 Academic year there are 201 schools with the designation.
With academic cooperation, the students have achieved success in national and international competitions and academic activities, for instance, The National Science and Mathematics Boost Camps held by the Promotion of Academic Olympiad and Development of Science Education Foundation, Young Physicists’ Tournaments, and Thailand-Japan Student Science Fair.
Sports and health, art, music and dance, community services and other extracurricular activities are actively promoted to develop communication, thinking, problem-solving ability as well as capacity of applying life skills and capability for technological application of the students. These are necessary for facing the challenge of the 21st century.
Students of PCSHS Phitsanulok come from Phitsanulok, the major city in the lower northern region, and its seven neighboring provinces—Uttaradit, Sukhothai, Tak, KamphaengPhet, Phichit, NakhonSawan and Phetchabun.
