_____________________

The Philippine Biology Olympiad (PBO) is the country's premier biology competition for students of grades 7 to 12 and serves as the venue for selection of the country's representatives to the annual International Biology Olympiad (IBO). The Department of Science and Technology - Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) has endorsed the Department of Biology of the Ateneo de Manila University and the Ateneo Biological Organization - eXplore. eXperience. eXcel (BOx) as the official organizers of the PBO.

Known as BioCamp for the last six years, the event has enabled students to participate in such activities as seminars, forums, laboratory workshops, a quiz bee, and an “amazing race.” All of these activities aim to enhance the students' interest, passion, and skills in the biological sciences; increase awareness on issues in biology, particularly biodiversity; and promote camaraderie among young biologists in the making. Starting this year, the four best performing participants will be declared the official representatives of the Philippines to the IBO .

What is Alpas?

Alpas , the theme of PBO 2018, is the Filipino word for breaking free and moving on to greater adventures in life. In the scientific community, discoveries and inventions require putting oneself out in the open, vulnerable and exposed. Thus, it is a cohesive word for the Philippine Biology Olympiad, formerly the Ateneo de Manila University BioCamp, as it takes its first step into the international scene - towards the International Biology Olympiad.
