Science to Youth Movement (in Bosnian "Pokret Nauku mladima"), was formerly the Alliance of Young Researchers of Bosnia and Herzegovina until 1992.
Function[change | change source]
The Movement’s activities were organized as networks of local young researchers at the annual festivals of the B&H, and at the federal level of the Former Yugoslavia. The participants, mostly high school students, competed to test their knowledge of natural sciences and mathematical sciences in the freely selected topics. The works were written in the form of graduation/diploma theses. They were then defended to the professors of the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Biotechnical and Biomedical sciences, and the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Three prizes were awarded annually, in the form of books.
Bi-weekly or monthly summer schools were commonly held in historically notable cities/locations, such as Tjentište, Boračko jezero, Treskavica – Vučja Luka (Wolf Harbour) Jezero (near Jajce) and others.
