Switzerland wins the International Championship for Young Physicists

Explanation of droplet explosion

Swiss high school students are world champions of physics

Five Swiss high school students won the gold medal at the World Physics Championships in Timisoara, Romania. They defeated Poland and Singapore.

The five students presented their solution to the “droplet explosion” problem at the International Young Physicists Championship (IYPT). It comes down to describing the phenomenon that a drop of a water mixture on the surface of an oily liquid can break up into smaller droplets.

The solution presented by Jan Kamm (Kelchberg ZH), Anya Christina Deauville (Forch ZH), David Fankhauser (Bar ZG), Chingge Ho (Zurich) and Joel Tan (Outenbach ZH) convinced the jury the most, allowing Switzerland to victory over Poland and Singapore. On Tuesday, the Pro IYPT-CH Association announced its victory.
