Welcome to UBC Physics Olympics Website
Every year teams from high schools across British Columbia will compete for medals in 6 science events, and the school of the team with the highest overall score will receive a trophy and other awards.
The 2016 UBC Physics Olympics will be held on Saturday March 5. The new rulebook will be available in February. Registration is now open.
The team from a school for a given event is nominally 5 students, but different students can participate in different events, and fewer than 5 students is also OK. So the team from a school could be from 1 to 30 students.
While every school team must have a "coach" on the day of the competition, we do not require that the "coach" be the physics teacher for the school. Any adult is OK, including student teachers, parents, administrators, or friends.
