Preparing Students for IOI: Thailand Country Report


Fellow, Royal Institute of Thailand E-mail: kanchit.ma@gmail.com


This paper describes the training process which is used to prepare Thai students for International Olympiad in Informatics. Thailand sent two observers to Minsk for the second IOI to find out about the contest and types of tasks used in the contest. Subsequently a selection process has been carried out every year to screen students for the training camps which are organized to provide students with adequate programming skills to solve the IOI tasks. At the beginning the training is under the responsibility of the Institute for the Promotion of Teaching Science and Technology (IPST). At present a new foundation, the Promotion of Academic Olympiad and Development of Science Education Foundation under the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana Krom Luang Narathiwas Rajanagarindra helps share the training responsibility of all Academic Olympiads including IOI. Both organizations now work together to make sure that students in all parts of the country have equal opportunity to receive training and equal chance to be selected as the student representatives of Thailand to IOI.
