The team’s coach director for elementary schools, Khamim, said the youngsters were the winners of the 2017 Indonesian National Science Olympiad.

Prior to competing in BIMC 2018, the students attended debriefing sessions in May and July.

“This achievement proved that we can compete in a global setting,” said Khamim.

Meanwhile, the team's chaperone, Ibnu Hadi, said Indonesian students could compete globally with students from developed countries, adding that it was a challenge for the teachers to discover their hidden talents. (jes/kes)
