What is the Asian Physics Olympiad?

The Asian Physics Olympiad (APhO) will bring 200 of the region’s best and brightest teenagers from 25 countries to Australia for nine days of academic competitions and cultural activities.

The competition involves two 5-hour long exams of university standard, one theory and one practical. Each country sends a team of eight competitors. Exams are undertaken individually, with bronze, silver and gold medals awarded to high-scoring students.

Students will benefit from this unique experience as they battle it out to prove their mettle, at the same time boost self-esteem and make long lasting relationships and networks from all over the world.

The APhO will put students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills centre stage with a wide range of fascinating exam tasks to inspire and challenge the science wiz in them.
