The ESSC is our Rotary Club of Taipei signature project, organized for nearly 70 years.

This year we invited students to bring their own projects and present to us.

We were very pleased to see many competing teams with a wide variety of projects in education, environment, elderly care etc...

Between the semi-finals and the final our club helped all the finalists to enhance their projects through a series of online trainings.

The final took place April 29th, gatherings 10 teams from all around Taiwan.

10 teams participated to the ESSC 2023 semi-final at Taipei-tech University in Taipei.
We were thrilled to see very divers projects, related to aging population, animal protection, environment, recycling – all very important subjects to enhance our communities.
This year the semi-final was more special as, apart from presenting their projects the students had the opportunity to get more support to improve their presentations and their projects.
First Calvin Chen from Taipei Tech explained how to improve their presentations skills in a small training session. Then the students were divided in two groups and get specific feedback on the content and the form. Many thanks to all the judges -coaches for their contributions!
The judges had a very hard time to eliminate projects, so we decided to invite all the 10 to join the final. We are certain that the feedback that their received from the coaches, alongside the further training that is planned will help the students to enhance even more their projects.
Thanks again to all the sponsors, which allow us to have not only great cash prizes but also opportunities for scholarships and internships!
All the best to all the 10 teams for the last preparations and see you on April 29th!
The 67the edition of the RCT’s ESSC is in full run.
We are thrilled to see many students getting together and presenting innovative solutions to a very wide area of challenges we encounter in our communities.
The judges had a difficult time to separate and grade the excellent projects! But we have the 10 happy qualified!
