Singapore Young Physicists' Tournaments

The Singapore Young Physicists' Tournament (SYPT) is modelled after the International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT), and is a competition among teams of students in their ability to solve complicated physics problems, to present solutions to these problems in a convincing way, and to defend them in scientific discussions called Physics Fights.

The competition is organised under two age categories:

  • Category A – for participants in JC 2 (or equivalent) and below, as of competition year;
  • Category B – for participants in Sec 4 (or equivalent) and below, as of competition year.

The award of Gold, Silver and Bronze each year is dependent on the regulations of SYPT for that year, as decided by the SYPT Committee.

More details are available on the dedicated SYPT website.
