Jan 3-4, 2014
First 3 rounds of 1st Young Genius Physics Tournament were conducted online in October, 2013 and 100 finalist are called to Jaipur for the falicitation function on 4th January, 2014 at Jawaher Kala Kendra Auditorium from 2:30pm onward. All IAPT RC-6 Members are coordially invited for the same.
With its unique format of several rounds of fights, the tournament was conceived by leaders in education and pedagogy. This tournament will inculcate spirit of competitiveness and the natural curiosity among students. The aim of the competition is three-fold;
- To identify and nurture science talent in the young students and to provide them a platform to showcase and measure their skills globally.
To promote self-learning through the greatest technological revolution in the last decade, the internet. To attract students to the several avenues of learning present online instead of the traditional classroom methods.
Traditional classroom teaching, though effective, has several shortcomings. The most prominent one is lack of interaction of teacher with every individual student and understanding of individual needs. The gap created can be bridged by the use of technology. Using the internet, the student can study at their own time and in familiar surroundings. Moreover students can study at their own pace, unlike traditional teaching methods where all students must study at the same speed regardless of their grasping abilities. The plethora of interactive audio-visual resources available on the world wide net has made it possible for every student to excel using the methods most suited to them. This initiative is aimed at providing students the opportunity to imbibe these pioneering learning resources in their daily studying routine.
- To encourage students to apply Physics in their daily lives. Every physical process is a real-life example of an amalgamation of several theories of physics that students study as part of their curriculum. This competition will encourage the students to identify these laws and theories by analyzing the physical phenomena around them
