Updates regarding the 2021 UBC Physics Olympics
Registration for the 2021 UBC Physics Olympics is now closed (deadline Jan 31). If you have any questions, please contact Theresa Liao at email@example.com.
(December 16, 2020) After some discussions, the UBC Physics Olympics Committee has decided that we will go ahead and host a virtual 2021 event – the virtual 41 ½ UBC Physics Olympics!
We anticipate that the event will include Quizzics, Fermi Questions, one pre-event activity, and one day-of activity. All activities will be virtual, and designed such that no in-person meetings of students and teachers are required, even for the pre-event activity. We are currently planning for the event to be held on March 6, 2021.
We will launch the registration form during the week of January 11th; we will announce it via email and our website. Registration deadline is set to be January 31st, 2021. The registration fee for each team will be $30 to cover the cost of managing the online platform, as well as designing the activities and testing them. Teachers/Schools that did not receive a refund of their 2020 Physics Olympics fee will have the fee deducted from their account balance; any unspent funds will be available for the 2022 UBC Physics Olympics. Upon registration, we will request a list of your student team members and their emails.
Please note that given the unpredictability of our circumstances, this event plan is subject to change. Any such changes will be announced as soon as they are made.
