International Science Olympiads
You can represent our country in the International Olympiads in five categories.
The reason to participate in the International Science Olympiads is to encourage middle school and high school students who are Turkish citizens to conduct work in natural sciences, to direct their studies, and to contribute to their development by providing educational opportunities in these fields. It also aims to select students who will represent our country in the International Science Olympiads, and to prepare them for competitions. The teams trained by TÜBİTAK represent our country in the International Science Olympiads held every year in five categories and in various regional Olympiads.
