Shalheveth Freier Physics Tournament

Each year, Weizmann hosts the greatest safe-cracking competition known to high schoolers - The Annual Shalheveth Freier Physics Tournament. Juniors and seniors in high schools form teams and take on the challenge: Build a safe that only your team can open, and then try to open the safes of all the other teams.

Each team builds a locked box that operates on the principles of physics, able to be opened by you in less than five minutes, but that will keep opponents stumped for at least 10 minutes.

Entries are scored by a panel of judges, not only for being pick-proof, but also for aesthetics and originality. Teams get added points for every safe they manage to crack. The two day showdown takes place at the Davidson Institute of Science Education, on campus of the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel.

Register your team today in order to be eligible for this exciting opportunity!

(Maximum 2 teams per school)
