The Swiss Young Naturalists' Tournament (SYNT) is a Swiss competition held in English, where science enthusiasts aged 12 to 16 from anywhere in Switzerland can participate. In a preparatory phase they carry out a small research project, whose results are presented and defended at the actual tournament.



Each student who lives in Switzerland and does not turn 17 during the year of the tournament can participate at the SYPT. It is easiest if the student participates at the SYNT Workshop or a teacher of the corresponding school takes care of the coaching. In the case of questions, we gladly help: Contact us.


Interested, but too old?

Are you interested in the SYNT but you're already 17 or turning 17 during the year of the tournament?

We might have something for you if you want to compete in a science tournament similar to the SYNT:
the Swiss Young Physicists' Tournament (SYPT).

Check out the SYPT homepage and learn more about the tournament. 

The SYNT 2023 will take place at the MNG Rämibühl on the 18th of March 2023.

Register now!

Online registration will now stay open until the 31st of December. Students can either sign up as an individual or in a team of two. When signing up as a team please note that each team must have a solution to two different SYNT problems and choose to participate in the same language. A workshop for preparation will be offered to the students (although only for participants with the problems 1, 2, 6, 11, 12, 16). Participation is free to both the tournament and the workshop.
