Australian Biology Olympiad success

27 October 2016

After two weeks of intensive training last January, plus three more days in April, all here in our RSB Teaching labs, the 2016 Australian Biology Olympiad team of four high school students went to Hanoi, Vietnam for individual competitions; a week of theory and practical exams. Out of 176 competitors, three Australian students were awarded a silver medal each, with our final competitor earning a bronze. A great result and many thanks to Guillaume Tcherkez and Bee Gunn for lending their time and expertise to teach the students all about flower and fruit morphology in April, and to Juliey Beckman for her work as Deputy Director of the Biology Olympiad Program.
