The Singapore Young Physicists’ Tournament (SYPT) 2011 was held on 29th February at Raffles Institution. It is a competition among teams of students in their ability to solve complex physics problems, to present solutions to these problems in a convincing way, and to defend them in scientific discussions called Physics Fights.
The competition seeks to bring students through a process of what real physicists do, from research to modelling to experimentation and finally to an oral defence before peers and experts. The SYPT provides opportunities to develop our budding physicists and promotes a new and exciting way in the learning of physics.
The SYPT 2011 ACJC team
The ACJC team comprised of team leader Tay Li Yu (2SB4), Tan Yi Hao (2SA4) and Lydia Ang (2SA2). They managed to be placed in the finals and received a commendation award as well as a $150 book voucher.
Congratulations to the team!
