Wallenberg's Physics Prize at Chalmers 2013
In 2013, the national final of Wallenberg's Physics Prize - a competition between all Swedish second- and third-year high school students in physics' - will be arranged by Chalmers University of Technology.
Many might have heard about the International Physics Olympics, but the road to reach there is further than you might imagine. A total number of 323 students, from 62 high schools, competed in this year’s national qualification round, which of 12 students went to the national final in Umeå, on March 23-24. Out of these 12 finalists, only five will represent Sweden in the international final.
In 2013, Chalmers will be responsible for organizing and hosting the national final of Wallenberg’s Physics Prize – a decision made of the Swedish Physical Society after requests from both Chalmers and Lund University to be hosts for the final. The final is divided in two days: day one consists of experimental assignments and day two of theoretical problem solving.
The thrilling final will involve a staff of 12 persons, which of five will judge each experiment, one will answer for practical arrangements and one will coordinate the program. The total number of competitors is 15 students, and the final will take place in Chalmers’ physics laboratories and lecture rooms.
The final will be in late March, 2013. Until then, stay tuned!
