singapore young physicists' tournament 2018

The Singapore Young Physicists’ Tournament (SYPT) tests participants’ ability to solve complicated real-world physics problems. The competition seeks to bring students through a process of what physicists do – from research to modelling, experimentation, and finally, to an oral defence before peers and experts. The SYPT provides authentic learning experiences in the learning of physics.

An internal selection for RGS teams to participate in SYPT 2018 was held in August 2017, and this culminated in the national finals in January 2018, where RGS Team B attained a Silver Award! Congratulations to the team!
