Take the challenge!
We work to encourage the study of Physics and recognise excellence in young physicists through four annual Physics competitions.
Two free entries: This year we are able to offer two free entries for all non-fee paying schools, due to sponsorship from a private donor, which has been allocated to BPhO to widen participation. Order your free papers through the online store.
IPhO 2013: The BPhO team achieve three silver and two bronze medals in the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO). Well done team! Read more about their trip here.
