Biology Students Inspire

Completely designed by two American School of The Hague (ASH) students, the International Schools Biology Competition sets a new precedent for inspiring students on the subject of biology and uniting neighboring schools towards a common cause. Already in its first year, the competition’s support from the American School of The Hague’s neighboring schools, local and international, has been tremendous.

Based on their observation that “High School students our age often only become acquainted with biology through the lens of rote memorization”, founders Thomas Mougey and Joost Vanderborgh (ASH Class of 2017) wanted to highlight the importance of fostering a genuine interest among students and classmates, regardless of where they come from. These two creative students felt that there was no real option to demonstrate course knowledge within either the international or the expat community and decided to combine their love for the International Baccalaureate’s Biology course and their leadership experience to create the first-ever International Schools Biology Competition.
