Cambridge International is pleased to announce the winners of the first phase of the Cambridge Upper Secondary Science Competition 2023.
More than 150 teams of students from around the world took part in the competition. Our expert panel of judges selected the best entries for Regional awards. This year a Sustainability Award was given for the first time, supported by our Director for Climate Education, Christine Özden.
The competition gives learners the chance to develop their passion for science and develop practical skills that complement their academic studies. Students studying Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge O Levels work in small teams to conduct their own scientific investigation. They are asked to consider sustainability in their planning and investigate a topic of practical relevance to their school or community – helping students connect science to solving real-world problems.
The Best in Region winners from around the world will be judged for the overall Best in World award, announced in December. Well done to all our winners and good luck!
