Carey Year 12 Student Selected for National Physics Team

Carey Year 12 Student Selected for National Physics Team

Congratulations to Year 12 student Owen Yandell who has been selected to the Australian national team to compete in the international Online Young Physicists Tournament (OYPT). 

Owen performed outstandingly in the IYPT Australia Challenge and was then invited to the National Team, forming part of a five-student team to take part in the tournament from 3 August to 6 August. 

This is a prestigious international physics contest among high school students and we’re very proud of Owen. In a process that is very close to real-life research, students are given authentic problems which they work on for a few months. They then engage in live debates on their research with other teams. 

Owen will be joined by Mr Gideon Choo, STEM Director, who will also serve as Team Leader for the Australian team. They will be travelling to Brisbane to work with the rest of the team in August. 

We wish them all the best!
