Get ready for a physics battle28/07/2015
The sixth Junior Young Physicists’ Tournament is being held in Wellington on October 16-19.
The JYPT is a somewhat simplified version of the NZYPT and IYPT where teams of four year 9-11 students from a school present and debate their solutions to a set of complex physics problems.
Typically schools from across New Zealand, Australia, South Korea and Singapore compete in the Junior Young Physicist’s Tournament.
It is a great way for students (and teachers) to learn what this form of tournament is all about and no prior experience is needed.
There is still plenty of time to prepare a team, but for planning purposes, the organisers would like to get some idea how many teams to expect.
At the tournament website there is a preregistration form to help with this which just needs basic information like school and teacher contact details.
On the website there is a wealth of information to help teachers and students prepare for the tournament, including the set of problems and the tournament regulations. It’s recommended that teachers read the regulations before entering for the first time.
