Szigetvari, a student of the Budapest Fazekas Mihaly secondary school, was member of the six-member Hungarian student team.

At the Games participants had to fill in a 25-question test in biology, chemistry and physics and then give account of their indepth knowledge of the subjects in additional rounds.

The Junior Science Olympics was established by Indonesia in 2004.
