NEIA 11th-grader John K. is leading the Outreach and Media efforts of the inaugural Internation Research Olympiad. “I’m passionate about these things,” John K. said. “And I believe that it would be good for more students to be able to explore and learn about this field.”

Like other science olympiads, this is a competition designed to promote scientific understanding and academic excellence. It gives ambitious students the platform to make meaningful contributions to the science community.

Looking Ahead:

  • March – Open Exam
  • April – Semifinals
  • May – Finals

According to the IRO’s website, their mission is to inspire and challenge students aged 13-18 around the globe… to cultivate many essential qualities of the research process. Unlike traditional science olympiads that delve into specific subjects, the IRO encourages students to build skills that will be useful in any research discipline. Through this, participants foster a deeper understanding of the scientific process and build overall creativity, critical thinking, and analysis skills, forming a foundation for later success.”

The first step in preparing for the IRO is to take the exam.
