International Physics Olympiads
The International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) is an annual physics competition for high school students. It is one of the international Science Olympiads. The first IPhO was held in Warsaw, Poland in 1967.
Each national delegation is made up of five student competitors plus two leaders, selected on a national level. Observers may also accompany a national team. The students compete as individuals, and must sit for intensive theoretical and laboratory examinations. For their efforts the students can be awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals or an honorable mention.
In Pakistan, National Physics Talent Contest (NPTC) is the oldest science contest in Pakistan which was later enhanced to National Science Talent Contests (NSTC) which is functioning under the umbrella of Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Careers Project, HEC. Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Science is the Home Institution (HI) for Training/Selection Camps for National Physics Talent Contest. Pakistani students have been participating regularly in International Physics Contest (IPhO) since 2001 while earlier participation was as observer. The Coordinator of NPTC is Dr. Shahid Qamar.
