They all have been guided by Dr. Tran Thi Thanh Xuan, Head of the Biology-Technology Team at Le Hong Phong High School for the Gifted.

This marks the seventh time that Vietnam has attended the WICO and achieved high results. In 2019, two inventions by Vietnamese students also won gold medals at the competition.

This achievement once again affirms the capacity for scientific research and teamwork of Vietnamese students.

This year, the 12th WICO was held in South Korea’s capital city of Seoul between February 3 and 4, with the participation of nearly 1,000 contestants from 28 countries, including those with the world's best educational systems such as the US, Australia, Canada, and Singapore.

The Vietnamese delegation participated in WICO 2023 with 99 members and 25 invention topics.

The WICO is an annual competition held by the Korea University Invention Association and sponsored by the South Korean National Assembly.

At the contest, secondary and high school students worldwide are offered the chance to present their innovations. It also encourages creative ideas, provides new insights, accelerates creativity, improves presentation skills, and establishes a global network.
