Message from the Principal


As the principal of Mahidol Wittayanusorn School, I take great pride in welcoming all participants of the Thailand International Science Fair 2021 (TISF 2021), which will take place on 6-8 January, 2021 with the theme “Strengthening Sustainability and Resilient Society through Science and Technology”.

Following the success of the TISF held in 2017 and 2019, this is our third time hosting the event. The TISF aims to bring together groups of young researchers from all over the world to present their science project findings, and exchange their ideas on future trends and needs. It has been gratifying to see the ever-increasing number of students pursuing their passion for science and making useful contributions to a better world.

2021 will be another challenging year, as we continue to deal with the consequences of a completely unprecedented global pandemic that has had a dramatic effect on all of us. However, we believe that this crisis has given us practical lessons on how to deal with the unknown. We believe that it is the time to learn to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We also believe that this is a great opportunity for us to develop science and technology in order to build resilience in society.

We have full confidence that all students, teachers and educators will have a wonderful experience taking part in the TISF 2021 and interacting with various people from other countries. We look forward to receiving you at Mahidol Wittayanusorn School as Thai guests, and meeting you as international guests virtually in January 2021.

Thank you.

We are taking you to experience the most famous landmarks and attractions in Bangkok. Join us on our first-ever exclusive virtual excursions guided by MWIT team.

1.Wat Pho

Wat Pho is not only one of the most visited Buddhist temples in Bangkok but it is where history, medical science and educational institute combined. Officially named Wat Prachetuphon Vimon Mangkararam, Wat Pho was believed to be founded during the 16th century and was later served as The Royal Temple of King Rama I of Chakri Dynasty. Laid inside the main ordination hall is the sacred 46-meter Reclining Buddha whose feet are beautifully inlaid with mother-of-pearl, carved with holy signs. Wat Pho is also known as "the nation's first public university," the 1,360 marble inscriptions about medical, historical and liberal sciences places all around the temple where the people can read and learn anytime. Marble inscriptions about medical sciences, anatomy and orthopedics are the origins of Wat Pho Thai traditional massage principles, which has made Wat Pho a world's famous site.

2.Museum Siam

Museum Siam is located in Thanon Sanam Chai, The Grand Palace. The museum serves as a learning center on ethnology, anthropology, and other fields related to Thai society and Southeast Asia, in order to instill consciousness and understanding of the Thai people in their history, nation, culture, and localities, as well as connect relative ties with neighboring countries. New methods of a display with modern media have been applied to enable participation of visitors in learning and understanding historical stories of the Thai nation. The contents on display in the form of the 'Essays on Thailand' have been divided into 14 rooms in the three storey building. In addition, learning activities are organized for youth and aficionados of museums.
