The bronze medal is ours!
IJSO – International Olympiad of Young Scientists was held this year in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand.
This is one of the most difficult Olympiads in the world, it is held in 3 natural science subjects: physics, chemistry and biology. The Olympics lasts for 10 days and is held in three rounds. Students compete with each other in test, theoretical and experimental tasks. Team leaders participate in the selection of Olympiad tasks and their translation, although all participants must be fluent in English. 54 countries participated in the Olympics this year. The brilliant performance of our team is all the more gratifying - we Georgians won a bronze medal!
