NBTO - National Biotechnology Olympiad

The NBTO is about inspiring the younger generation to improve their understanding of biotechnology and to test their aptitude for pursuing a profession in biotechnology in the future. It raises awareness about biotechnology by introducing a competitive aspect. Biotechno Activity Books & Work Books, in addition to the annual e-newspaper, have been well received by schools.

The EduHeal NBTO (National Biotechnology Olympiad) is organised by the EduHeal Foundation and focuses on assisting students in enhancing their knowledge of science linked to biotechnology. The EduHeal handbook compiles all of the materials needed by students, including sample papers, syllabi, and exam information (pattern, marking, and dates).
