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.
Students from all over the world compete in regional semi-finals for the chance to represent their country at the International tournament final in Israel. Here in Canada, our semi-final tournament takes place each February.
The two winning Canadian teams travel to the Weizmann Institute of Science for the final competition, where the the two-day showdown takes place at the Davidson Institute of Science Education. 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.
Audience: 11th -12th grade students from Canada with an interest in physics.
Date: The final competition at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel will take place from March, 21-22, 2023. The Canadian semifinals will be in February 2023.
How: Registration may be submitted by teachers/mentors only. We encourage students who want to participate in the tournament to appeal to their teachers.
