The Swiss Young Physicists' Tournament 2022 took place on the 26th and 27th of March at the main building of ETH Zurich. After two years without an in-person tournament, we are delighted to have organized a highly successful in-person tournament.

A total of 30 students in 10 teams participated in this year's tournament and presented their solutions to one of the 17 SYPT problems. In the months leading up to the tournament, they invested a lot of time and effort to prepare for the competition. They planned experiments, evaluated data, and worked on the theoretical foundations of their projects. Additionally, this year students had to cope with the uncertainty of whether an in-person tournament would be possible at all.

"Many schools and teachers were very careful during the pandemic with such alternative teaching formats that mix students from different classes", said Samuel Byland, president of Pro IYPT-CH. "This makes it even better that the students were not dissuaded from taking part and could now show their results in front of the jury."

After three rounds and a final, the winners were clear. Jan Kamm, Joel Tan, and Chengjie Hu won the prize for the best team and Jan Kamm also was first in the individual ranking. The best nine students now have the chance to qualify for the international tournament in Rumania.

Further information including both the individual and team ranking can be found below.
