The German Festival was held at the Vietnamese German Center on the Hanoi University of Science and Technology campus on Nov 6.
Initiated by the German Embassy in Hanoi and co-organized by the German Academic Exchange Service, the Goethe Institute and the Central Agency for German Schools Abroad, the event offered an entertaining, multifaceted program, including German trial lessons, various quiz shows and competitions, information booths, German food and drinks.
A special attraction was "Science Slam," a presentation contest that has gained much popularity in Germany.
Young academics present results of their own research in the competition, which focuses more on the "enlightening and creative style of presenting the work of research" than the content.
The Science Slam winner, selected by a jury of experts and the audience, got a Dell Laptop (Vostro 1014) as the prize.
The Vietnamese German Center is located on 1 Dai Co Viet Street, Hanoi.
