A group of four National University of Singapore (NUS) students emerged as the winner of the 2016 International Natural Sciences Tournament (INST) held in Russia. 

The INST 2016 was held from Oct 12 to 16, and there were a total of six teams that participated in the competition.

Two of the teams were from Novosibirsk State University, another two were from the University of Indonesia, one team was from NUS, and one was from the University of Salamanca (Spain).

It was the first time that the tournament was held on the premises of the Novosibirsk State University.

Said Daniel Kolokolov, the president of the tournament jury: 

“Singapore students won fair and square. The team demonstrated excellent skills in public speaking and extensive knowledge of subject.

"The winning team effectively applied their knowledge of science progress in the field for the past three years. They also researched best practices and developed their own concept."
