OSU Representing USA at International Physics Tournment in Zurich

For the second year in a row, the OSU Society of Physics Students (SPS) won first place in the United States Physicist Tournament (USPT)!.  As a result, we now have the privilege of representing the United States at the 2024 International Physicists' Tournament (IPT) taking place in Zurich, Switzerland in April.  However, we need your help to get there!  

In participating in the IPT, our team of Cowboy students has the opportunity to apply their physics knowledge learned inside and outside of the classroom to tackle open-ended, real-world problems and present their research in "physics fights" against teams from other countries. The students get to work on real-world projects and experiments in addition to learning how to present findings in a professional setting. In addition to the educational benefits, students make connections to in-field experts and likeminded peers from around the world, visit one of the most culturally rich cities in the world, and experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent Oklahoma State and the United States in this prestigious international event.
