Irish Physics Olympiad
TY Student, Yitian Chen wins Gold
The Irish Olympiad of Experimental Science (IrEOES) is an individual science competition for Transition Year and Fifth Year students. Round 2 of IrEOES 2022-2023 took place in Dublin City University on Saturday, 21st January 2023. We are very proud to announce that Transition Year student, Yitian Chen won a gold medal for Physics! This is an incredible achievement as a total of six students were awarded medals, one gold (Yitien), one silver and four bronze.
The competition entails a 90-minute theory test consisting of two experiment questions and a few short-response questions. The two experiment questions are incredibly challenging as they are beyond the Leaving Certificate and IB syllabus.
The six medallists have been invited to experimental training and testing. Following that, two top-performing students will be selected to represent Ireland in the European Olympiad of Experimental Science (EOES) Physics.
