The Swiss Biology Olympiad, SBO, is a competition for high school students with a strong interest in Biology. With the preparatory week and the three exam sessions, we hope to motivate and fascinate the young biologists with the most up-to-date classes, work in the lab and challenge them with questions that require them to deduce the answers by combining the facts they have learned.
The SBO Week 2015 is already over and after an interesting week with diverse practicals, the four winners have been elected: Sarah Hilfiker (Kollegium Spiritus Sanctus), who already won a gold medal one year ago, Govind Krishnamani (Lycée Denis-de-Rougemont), Anna-Sophia Stocker (Kantonsschule Schaffhausen) and Eva Angehrn (Gymnasium Kirchenfeld).
They are all qualifiers for the International Biology Olympiads 2015 in Denmark.
Thanks to an extraordinarily generous donation from Amgen we can this year award an additional prize for the highest score in a single test.
The Amgen-Award 2015 goes to Sarah Hilfiker. She wins a premium tablet-computer.
