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.

Please contact Professor Marina Milner-Bolotin for all registration related questions.
