Unge forskere competition 2011 ISS students are again showing their skills as ‘Young Researchers’. Four ISS students were invited to the Unge forskere national final in Oslo on 15th April 2011. I had the privilege of travelling to Oslo for the day, and spent an inspiring few hours talking to finalists from around Norway – many of them IB Diploma students – and all incredibly talented, interesting young people with a zest for life and academic research! I am happy to report the ISS students were extremely successful in this prestigious national competition, and also that they enjoyed the experience of the Unge forskere final presentations and activities, including a fabulous gala dinner on the Friday evening. Looking back over the results since ISS students began to enter the competition in the year 2000, I notice that there have now been 36 finalists from ISS over the 12 years. An average of three finalists a year is an outstanding achievement – and this year there were four!
