The IYNT is an annual competition open to students aged 12-16 years from around the globe. Dubbed the Science Fight, the competing students engage in scientific discussion on a variety of topics that aims to shape their creativity and imagination in science.

The 2017 competition saw the participation of 18 teams from 11 countries, including Russia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Croatia, Iran and Kazakhstan.

“Although Indonesian participants are still junior high school students, they were able to compete with the high school students,” said team leader Dyah in Jakarta on Thursday. (mas/kes)
