EuPhO 2019 Singapore Team Results


European Physics Olympiad (EuPhO) is a contest for high school students. In addition to the International Physics Olympiad (started in 1967) there exist traditions of regional competitions such as Asian Physics Olympiad (since 2000) and Ibero-American Physics Olympiad (since 1991). The concept of EuPhO is similar to real research situations, with short problems description and plenty of space for creative solutions.

The 3rd EuPhO was held in Riga, Latvia from May 31 to June 4, 2019 and hosted by the University of Latvia.
