SYPT

The Swiss Young Physicists' Tournament (SYPT) is a Swiss competition, where physics enthusiasts from middle schools from anywhere in Switzerland participate. In a preparatory phase they carry out a small research project, whose results are presented and defended at the actual tournament.

Participation

Each student in the secondary education stage II who lives in Switzerland can participate at the SYPT. It is easiest if a teach of the corresponding school takes care of the coaching; however, it is not necessary. In the case of questions, we gladly help: Contact us.
