✶Science Project Oral Presentation
The research abstract of the student’s project should have a maximum of 350 words and meet the following requirements.
The duration of the research project video should be within 5-8 minutes. The presentation should be creative and demonstrates the uniqueness of the project.
Each video presentation of a research project will be followed by 5-minute live Q&A. The time slots for overseas schools will be arranged at the best possible time based on time zone difference of each region.
This is a chance for participants to learn more about some of the latest and exciting innovations under the theme of Gen Z: Advancing Global Sustainability. These special topics will be delivered by invited experts.
Participants will be assigned to groups randomly to solve the puzzle or clear the mission in science and mathematics in the style of “Escape Rooms”. Not only utilizing capability in science and math, but participants also must communicate and work as a group to pass the challenge in each room to get the key for the next room. The team passing to the final room will be the winner.
✶Social and Cultural Program
The Cultural Program is limited to 3 minutes per school. Participating schools can share their traditional cultures and authentic activities via a video presentation. We encourage you to showcase your culture creatively.
We will appreciate it if you would consider nominating a teacher from your school to give a 15-minute presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A. We shall contact the teacher directly via his/her email address to discuss further details of the session.

Sci Talk Topic: Molecular Engineering of Organic Semiconductor Materials for Applications in Emerging Solar Cells
Abstract: In this talk, firstly, I will briefly summarize our research interests and results. I will then focus on the two main topics in the field of solar energy conversion devices, namely dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and perovskite solar cells (PSCs). In DSSCs, an improvement of the performance of the organic dyes as sensitizers for DSSCs by fine-tuning the dye chemical structures will be presented. A series of organic push-pull molecules with different molecular configurations of the donor (D)-π-acceptor (A), D-D-π-A, D(dendron)-π-A, D-π-A-π-A, D-π(D)-A, D-π-A-π(D)-A bearing triarylamine, carbazole, and carbazole dendrons as D moieties have been designed, synthesized and investigated. The relationships between the structure of these dyes and properties and cell performances will be drawn and discussed. Some of these dyes show power conversion efficiencies surpass that of the Ru-based device measured under similar conditions, indicating a high potential candidate for commercial use. In PSCs, the study and development of novel materials (perovskite and hole-transporting material (HTM)) that can improve efficiency, stability, and upscaling of PSCs will be illustrated. Examples of HTMs will be discussed in terms of the structure-property relationships, with particular attention to the molecular design that affects the device performance. The methylammonium lead iodide (CH3NH3PbI3)-based inverted PSC utilized the developed HTM layer achieves PCE of >20% with hysteresis-free and long-term stability. The fabrication of inverted PSC modules (10 x 10 cm2) will also be presented, and the PSC prototype at TRL 6 exhibits PCE of >16%.
