This week we managed what we just narrowly missed last year: winning the IYNT trophy!

Preparation for this year’s IYNT started somewhat early, but definitely kicked off fully after the SYNT in March. In the last months, Ester, Lilly, Lohitsai, Lucas, Michael and Samuel worked hard. Investigating the process of making quark, playing tunes on bottles, investigating properties of granular materials and many other interesting problems.

On July 3rd it was finally time to fly to Tbilisi, Georgia, to test, how well prepared we were. This year we were going to meet 15 teams from 9 countries.

From the 5th to the 12th of July the 6th International Young Naturalists' Tournament (IYNT) will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia. For more information about this location refer to the IYNT webpage.

Switzerland will send a team of six students to participate at the IYNT in Georgia. There the student will have the chance to present their findings on an international stage, meet science enthusiasts from all over the world and experience a new culture.
