UNESCO Olympiads will test Australia's brightest adolescents

THE country's smartest adolescents are heading for the test of a lifetime.

Up and coming biologists, chemists, computer programmers, physicists, mathematicians and earth scientists will represent Australia in the world's toughest science and mathematics competitions.

The 27 high school kids from NSW, Victoria, WA and Queensland will pit their wits against 2000 of their peers at the world's toughest science and mathematics competitions.

The UNESCO-sanctioned International Science and Mathematical Olympiads will be held in July and September.

The Australian teams in mathematics and informatics include two students who tied for first in the world last year.

Victoria's Alex Gunning achieved a first for Australia with a perfect score and a gold medal in maths.

NSW's Ishraq Huda also won gold and was one of only three in the world to attain a perfect score in informatics, another first for Australia.

The year nine to 12 students will receive their Australian team at Parliament House in Canberra today MONDAY. - APN NEWSDESK
