USA Biology Olympiad - Institute for Educational Advancement

USA Biology Olympiad

As the premiere biology competition for high school students in the United States since it began in 2002, the USA Biology Olympiad (USABO) enriches the life science education of nearly 10,000 talented students annually. After two rounds of challenging exams, 20 Finalists are invited to a residential training program at the USABO National Finals where they will participate in 10 days of biology instruction inclusive of laboratory training and conceptual understanding followed by two days of testing. Ultimately, four students earn the right to advance as Team USA at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO), a worldwide competition involving student teams from over sixty countries.
