Yale Physics Olympics

Reminder - we need to decide on a team for the Yale Physics Olympics, which will be held on Saturday, October 24th at Yale.

The theme of the event is "physics is fun!" The hope is that the participants enjoy themselves while applying basic ideas from physics in a practical context and hopefully learn some new physics during the day.

The event takes the form of a pentathlon, consisting of five 35-minute events. Each event is a task or simple experiment which the students perform as a term and for which they obtain a result or measurement. The teams are ordered based on the accuracy of their results and prizes awarded to the winning teams.

Breakfast and lunch are provided and it is free.

Transportation is on your own - there is no school provided transportation.

Let me know by Friday, September 18th in class.

For more information, you can go to the YPO website:
