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.
