NDO – The 20th National Physics Olympiad officially kicked off on April 20 at Tan Trao University in Tuyen Quang province, attracting the participation of more than 300 students across the country.

The entrants, coming from 44 universities and colleges nationwide, are competing in multiple-choice exams, practical exercises and experiments.

A symposium on modern physics and its applications will also be held under the framework of the contest, in addition to an arts performance featuring the participating students.

The four-day event is held jointly by the Ministry of Education and Training, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Association, and the Vietnam Physics Association.

The annual Olympiad aims to improve the quality physics education, recognise outstanding students in physics, and promote enthusiasm for studying the subject among them. It also provides a venue for students who share a common interest in physics to exchange experiences in studying and researching the subject.
