Description

The International Young Physicists’ Tournament (IYPT), also referred to as “Physics World Cup”, is a team-oriented scientific competition among teams of three to five secondary school students. The participants present their solutions to scientific problems they have prepared over several months and then discuss their solutions with other teams. The roles of Reporter (Presentation), Opponent and Reviewer are graded by a jury consisting of international experts.

The Tournament has grown since its establishment in 1988, from a Soviet-based Russian-language competition, into one of the World’s largest and most prestigious international physics contests with nations from all regions of the World competing annually.
