Shining international spotlight onto Taiwan with international competitions
Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament
To build a solid foundation in science education among young students, Y. Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation started the Y. Z. Hsu Competition-Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament in 2009 with the Department of Physics, National Taiwan Normal University. The competition is open to high school student teams around the nation. Students who perform well during the competition will be recruited to the national team, which will train with professors from National Taiwan Normal University, and compete in International Young Physicists’ Tournament (IYPT). The twelve questions for contestants of Taiwan Young Student Physicists’ Tournament are selected from the 17 questions published by IYPT. The tournament attracts students from top high schools each year. They conduct experiment or simulation based on each question; report and debate over their findings with other contestants during the tournament. As of 2020, the 11th year of the tournament, the event has attracted 1,685 contestants and awarded NT$11.91 million in prizes. The 2020 National Team won the IYPT bronze medal for Taiwan. Y. Z. Hsu Science and Technology Memorial Foundation has been sponsoring food, accommodation and transportation for the IYPT national team members. The students were exceptional, winning 1 gold, 5 silver and 5 bronze medals.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 tournament was held online.
