The physics field day winners of 2015. From left to right: First place – Brandon Shockley, second place – Nate Lee, third place – Jacob Bell
The competition will begin with a two hour written exam composed of multiple choice and free response questions. This will be followed by a ‘back of the envelope’ section consisting of timed Fermi Problems. After lunch there will be a hands on, experimental competition. The qualitative portions will be algebra based and AP style, and as such will be a good way to prepare for the actual exam.
We have had a total of $300 in prizes to give away in past years!
Following the testing, we have had presentations from experts in astrophysics, atomic physics, and biophysics, lab tours, and more!
The competition is now officially cancelled. We will initiate the refunding process if you have already paid. Sorry for the inconvenience and we will see you next year
