Global Youth Science and Technology Bowl (GYSTB)

Global Youth Science and Technology Bowl (GYSTB) is an international student science project competition in biology, chemistry, physics and engineering in Hong Kong.

The competition is a showcase of global youth scientific achievement and innovation, which aims to promote science and technology, provide a platform for global youth to develop their creativity and scientific mindsets, and facilitate the exchange of scientific ideas, interests and abilities among young scientists all over the world. Science talents all over the world will compete for the grand prizes with their research reports and prototypes.

SciFest has been affiliated since 2020, and has given many students the opportunity to represent Ireland on the world stage.
