The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is an annual competition for the world’s most talented chemistry students. Every year, nations around the world send a team of four who are tested on their chemistry knowledge and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination.

The Filipino chemistry wizards were chosen as the country’s delegates to the international science tilt after winning gold medals in the 21st Philippine National Chemistry Olympiad (PNCO).

Philippine high school students recently won awards in the 52nd International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) organized online in Switzerland.

Philippine high schools bagged two medals and four awards in this year’s International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), the oldest and most prestigious of the international scientific Olympiads, held in Oslo, Norway.
