We are pleased to announce the launch of the 3rd Singapore Physics League (SPhL) – a fast-paced online team contest where you get to solve fun physics problems. 

This is a perfect opportunity for you to talk all things physics and “jam” with your fellow physics enthusiasts! The competition is team-based and will demand intense strategy and coordination. SPhL problems are innovative, interesting and intellectually stimulating – so you can expect many enlightening discussions of physics throughout this thrilling, dynamic competition! 

This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, 8 July 2023, from 9am to 1pm. You can take part from anywhere – you just need to be able to access our online platform. You should form teams of 3 - 5 students, who may even come from different schools! 

There are two categories in the league:
