Twenty-four students gather online for the inaugural Junior Science Olympiad Spring School

The UNESCO-sanctioned International Junior Science Olympiads is a highly prestigious and rigorous competition for students under sixteen years of age. Each year, hundreds of students represent their country and compete in individual and team competitions, vying for gold medals.

2021 will mark the first year Australia will send a team to the International Junior Science Olympiads. Students first sit the Junior Science Olympiad Exam, and depending on their score, may be invited to the Junior Science Olympiad Spring School.

At the Spring School, students will participate in an enriching training program, where they’ll hear from guest lecturers, take part in experiments, and test their skills and knowledge through a number of activities.

We are thrilled to announce the twenty-four students taking part in the 2021 Junior Science Olympiad Spring School.
