The Summer School of Science is an initiative of a group of young Vietnamese scientists working in Singapore (Dr. Giap Van Duong, Dr. Ngo Duc The, Dr. Luu Quang Hung) who committed to inspire young students in the home country. The first summer school was held in August 2013 at College of Science, Vietnam National University, Hanoi with the supports from its staffs (Dr. Trinh Thi Thuy Giang, Dr. Nguyen Thanh Binh and Mr. Truong Ngoc Kiem). There were 80 participants selected from 180 applicants through an open application process.

Following the success of the first Summer School of Science organized in 2013, the second Summer School of Science is held in 2014 with more interesting contents and topics. The main theme for this year is “All Roads Lead to Science”, and opened to 200 students. The Summer School of Science 2014 will be hosted by Vietnam National University, Hanoi, and held at the Nguy Nhu Kon Tum Auditorium at 19 Le Thanh Tong, Hanoi, from 20-22/08/2014.
