The international Physics Olympiad 2016 has commenced

2nd April 2015

The tasks for the 1st round of the 47th international Physics Olympiad 2016 are available! This year is going to be an intricate affair! Besides a crossword, there are also tasks focusing on a blurred picture, slipping packets of salt and a distracted electron. Junior participants are allowed to balance a broom. The submission documents will be forwarded to the individual federal states in the following days and should be distributed thereafter among the schools.

The 47th IPhO will take place in Zurich, Switzerland in July 2016. The tasks for the second round of the competition will then be available from September onwards on the IPN webpage.
