Welcome to UBC Physics Olympics Website
Registration is now closed! We have an increased demand from schools this year, so we had to create a waiting list.
Additional updates for the 2019 rulebook have been announced (Feb 11, 2019). Please visit the rulebook page for more information!
The 2019 Physics Olympics will take place on Saturday, March 9. Every year teams from high schools across British Columbia will compete for medals in 6 science events. The team with the highest overall score will receive a trophy for their school, as well as other awards.
Up to five students from a team can participate in any given event, and different students from a team can participate in different events. As such, teams may have between 1 and 30 students.
While every school team must have a designated coach on the day of the competition, we do not require that the coach be the physics teacher for the school. Any responsible adult may serve as the designated coach, including teachers, parents, administrators, or friends.
