Icelandic Physics Team Awarded at Olympics

ipho2012_logoThe Icelandic national team in physics boasted great success at the 2012 International Physics Olympiad in Estonia, which came to an end yesterday.

The team received two honorary awards, one bronze and one silver, which is Iceland’s best achievement to date.

The competition began on July 16 and contestants had to solve both hypothetical and practical projects, ruv.is reports.

Martin Swift, the team’s coach, said the projects were difficult as they test the contestants’ resourcefulness as well as their knowledge.

The Physics Olympiad was held for the 43rd time this year.
