Sibol symbolizes standing up, facing new opportunities, and rediscovering one’s top potential in the biological sciences.

Sibol is the Filipino term for expressing growth amidst difficulties, connoting an act of resiliency against external struggles. Now that the Philippine Biology Olympiad has adapted to the new normal brought about by the global challenges we currently face, our mission to harness and deepen the understanding appreciation of our participants to the biological sciences continue as they vie for the exceptional opportunity of representing the country in the International Biology Olympiad.
