In-House Projects | Physics Olympics
Contests are open to anybody - usually, we'll swing some small cash prizes for the top three places to keep things fun. Winners are strongly encouraged to join the Physics Olympics team for a fun one-day competition in April of this year.
Build a car out of pasta, roll it down a ramp, car that goes the farthest wins! Creative opportunities are endless; the materials list isn't. Pasta, hot glue (only "spot welding" is allowed) and olive oil are allowed.
