The International Olympiads in Sciences for Youth (IOs) are held under the auspices of UNESCO, and their aim is to encourage young people to undertake in-depth work and excel in the various fields of science. The competitions take place annually in a variety of scientific fields. Each year, Israel sends delegations to 4 International Olympiads in Sciences – to the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), to the International Olympiad in Computer Science (IOI), to the International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO), and to the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO).
The Olympiads are a meeting place for students with outstanding skills in a particular content area, from all over the world, competing on theoretical and practical knowledge. Gold, silver and bronze medallions are awarded to students, in line with their results in the competition, and a weighting of the results provides Israel’s ranking among the competing countries. 4-6 of the top high school students from each of the participating countries are invited to the Olympiads.
