A second workshop will be offered on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 9.30 to 13.00 at the University of Bern. We meet at 9.00 at the meeting point in Bern HB. The afternoon continues with an event offered together with all the other Swiss scientific olympiads.

Goodbye Brisbane!

Heute Nachmittag war bereits die Closing Ceremony, und eine super IOI mit vielen tollen Erlebnissen geht zu Ende.

Der offizielle Teil unserer Mission an die IOI ist nun fertig, und ab morgen werden wir unseren Australien-Trip in Sydney fortsetzen :-)

Australia Zoo

Nach einem anstrengenden Contest-Tag erholten wir uns auf einer Exkursion in den Australia Zoo. Wir sahen Kängurus, Wallabies, Koalas, eine Krokodil-Show, eine Tiger-Show, Wombats (die übrigens in einer Aufgabe vom Montag vorkamen) und allerhand weitere interessante Wesen.
