Morgan Students Compete in Yale's Physics Olympics

Posted on 10/25/2019

Recently, Morgan Physics students accompanied by Mrs. Walston, competed in Yale's Physics Olympics, an all-day physics competition for Connecticut and surrounding area high school students and teachers. Morgan scored among the top ten teams!

Representing their high school or learning institution, students compete in teams of four to complete a pentathlon of a variety physics-themed activities. Different every year, they can involve: measuring an unknown quantity, optimizing a process, or constructing a device to perform a function. One event is always a quiz consisting of Fermi Problems, which require combining clever quantitative guesses to produce a good final estimate of some unknown number.
