About HKISO

Hong Kong International Science Olympiad (HKISO) is an International Science Competition held annually around the world. It consists of 4 main categories: Physics, Biology, Chemistry & Integrated Science.

HKISO is for students from Grade 2 to Grade 10. It follows closely with Hong Kong School Science Syllabus and tests what students have learned on their level of content. This allows participants to well-prepare in different categories to know their strengths and weakness for preparation.

Winners from HKISO Heat Round can have a chance to work with participants from different regions to try out some experiments altogether in Singapore OR Hong Kong alternatively.

Hong Kong International Science Olympiad, HKISO is organized by Olympiad Champion Education Centre from Hong Kong, a registered educational center listed on Education Bureau of Hong Kong (EDB Reg No: 598 216) to provide Science Olympiad classes in Hong Kong.

Mr. Lai Chun Yin, the former Gold winner from Hong Kong Physics Olympiad in 2017, gold winner in MATHEMATICS & PHYSICS in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Secondary School Mathematics and Science Competition in 2018, is also a former IMO winner.

To inspire curiosity and an attitude of discovery, to promote the understanding that progress has been happening in scientific fields for centuries, to encourage the integration of ideas and subjects, to encourage truth-seeking, to allow students to study important scientists who asked good questions and worked towards good answers.

Message from Chairperson

Dear students, parents, teachers & partners all over the world.

Welcome to join Hong Kong International Science Olympiad Final Round 2019 – 2020.

For the 1 st year, there are 5 teams and about 200 candidates to join the final round. This is a wonderful result for all of us to be interested in HKISO which should be held at the National University of Singapore, NUS for the first year.

We have 10 active teams from Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam from HKISO Heat Round 2019 – 2020. To inspire curiosity and an attitude of discovery, to promote the understanding that progress has been happening in scientific fields for centuries, to encourage the integration of ideas and subjects, to encourage truth-seeking, to allow students to study important scientists who asked good questions and worked towards good answers, OCEC all decides to organize Hong Kong International Science Olympiad (HKISO) that included a mini-experiment in the heat round.

We all wish Hong Kong International Science Olympiad more success! We look forward to meeting everybody in HKISO Final 2020 – 2021 at NUS, Singapore!

All the best!!

Dr. Andy Lam, Ph.D. in Mathematics — Concentration in Actuarial Science and Risk Analytics Chairperson,
