On January 18th, 82 students were fighting for a spot in the final round of the Swiss Physics Olympiad. In a two-part examination, exciting problems in mechanics, thermodynamics and optics had to be solved.
The best 28 participants will compete in the final on 18 and 19 March, with the chance of winning both medals and a spot in the Swiss team for the European or International Physics Olympiad. In the meantime, the young physicists are preparing for the upcoming exams in a training camp at the EPFL.
We would like to thank all the students for their participation. If you didn't make it to the final this year, try again next year!
