International Physics Olympiad

The first International Physics Olympiad was held in Warsaw in 1967. Only 5 countries participated in the competition at that time. The competition was organized by A. Czeslaw Ścisłowski. Over time, the project began to develop. In 2018, teams from 92 countries from all over the world participated in the Olympics.

Individual countries are sending 5 talented young physicists to participate in the International Physical Olympiad. During the competition, students face an empirical and theoretical test.

The next edition of the Olympics will be held in Japan in 2023.
