Welcome to UBC Physics Olympics Website

Thank you for participating in the 39th UBC Physics Olympics! We will see you next year.

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 2017 Physics Olympics will be on Saturday, March 4th. Registration for the 2017 Physics Olympics is now closed. Download the final rulebook HERE.

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.
