The Swiss Young Naturalists' Tournament (SYNT) is a Swiss competition held in English, where science enthusiasts aged 12 to 16 from anywhere in Switzerland can participate. In a preparatory phase they carry out a small research project, whose results are presented and defended at the actual tournament.



Each student who lives in Switzerland and does not turn 17 during the year of the tournament can participate at the SYPT. It is easiest if the student participates at the SYNT Workshop or a teacher of the corresponding school takes care of the coaching. In the case of questions, we gladly help: Contact us.


Interested, but too old?

Are you interested in the SYNT but you're already 17 or turning 17 during the year of the tournament?

We might have something for you if you want to compete in a science tournament similar to the SYNT:
the Swiss Young Physicists' Tournament (SYPT).

Check out the SYPT homepage and learn more about the tournament. 

The SYNT 2024 will take place on Jun 1st at MNG Rämibühl (Rämistrasse 58, 8001 Zürich). The registration is open until May 12th through the registration form.
Due to the schedule, we cannot offer a workshop this year. Instead we offer an online coaching with one of our experienced coaches. With them you can discuss your experimental setup, theory or results, get tips for your presentation or clarify any questions on the tournament and proceedings. To register, indicate your interest in the workshop section within the registration form.
