Introducing Standardization to Younger Generations: Fostering Future Excellence

SIST believes that introducing standardization to the younger generation is of utmost importance. Familiarizing young people with standardization is one of the main reasons why SIST actively engages with events organized by educational institutions. One such event occurred between 12 and 13 March, where SIST representatives, with their two ambassadors for standardization, participated in the ‘5 Minutes for Measurement’ event, hosted by the Laboratory for Metrology and Quality at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

This event, tailored to primary, secondary, and upper secondary school students, aimed to explain the fundamental concept of measurement, a cornerstone of scientific and technological experimentation.


Within the faculty's hall, various experiments were arranged to demonstrate different facets of measurement, encompassing physical, chemical, and psychological aspects. Participants engaged with a thermal imaging camera, delving into its application in navigating through dense fog and deciphering the influence of heat in our surroundings. Furthermore, they explored practical aspects of measurement by calculating stress levels while traversing virtual skyscrapers and monitoring energy consumption during simulated rowing activities. Attendees learned to assess the sensory delight of pastries, while artificial intelligence quantified their emotional response to consumption.


SIST's presence at the event aimed to underscore the symbiotic relationship between standardization and measurement, emphasizing their intertwined significance. SIST designed interactive quizzes centred around standards and standardization, offering participants the opportunity to test their knowledge and win practical prizes through a spin-the-wheel game. SIST firmly believes that by engaging with such initiatives and imparting pertinent knowledge, they equip young minds with valuable insights that will serve them well in the future.


In conclusion, nurturing an understanding of standardization among the younger generation is imperative for fostering a future where innovation and excellence prevail. Through collaborative efforts and educational outreach, SIST endeavour to inspire a generation of standardization experts who will drive progress and ensure the continued relevance of standardized practices in the years to come.
