Absar Khan Siam of Motijheel Ideal School has won a Silver Medal and Rubayat Jalal of Rajshahi University School, Ahmed Nafis Farhan of Willes Little Flower Higher Secondary School and Imtiaz Tanvir Rahim of Barisal Zilla School have won bronze medals at 14th International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) that held from December 3-12, 2017 in the Netherlands.

The IJSO is organized every year where more than 300 students from 50 different countries represent their understanding in the fields of biology, chemistry and physics. The Olympiad aims to introduce the students at a young age to an international network of science enthusiasts and increase the interest in natural sciences among students under the age of 15.

The students were given two individual tests followed by a group practical examination requiring a team effort and worked on real-world challenges related to this year’s theme of water and sustainability.  ‘Water’ has become an important issue worldwide. Access to clean and safe drinking water is an increasing problem in many countries, while the low lying countries run an increased risk of catastrophic floods because of climate change.

A number of six Bangladeshi students have attended The 14th IJSO. These students were selected among 5,500 participants through 9 regional Olympiads and Bangladesh Junior Science Olympiad (BDJSO) 2017 organised by Bangladesh Freedom Foundation and Society for the Popularisation of Science, Bangladesh (SPSB). Bangladesh team was led by Mr. Sazzadur Rahman Chowdhury, Executive Director of BFF and Professor Dr. Farseem Mannan Mohammady of BUET.

Professor Jamilur Reza Choudhury, Honorable Chairman of BFF, has congratulated the students for their grand success.
