Welcome 2018 New York State Master Teachers!

Physics Olympics!

Please join us for the 2018 Physics Olympics at SUNY Buffalo State!

The NYS Master Teacher program is pleased to announce the Western New York Physics Teachers Alliance 2018 Physics Olympics for middle and high school students.  We encourage you and your students to join us Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 8:30 am-1:00 pm in the Science and Math Complex at Buffalo State for this year’s Physics Olympics!  We will have events that involve construction, problem solving, creativity, quick thinking, teamwork and some luck. The intensity of the events is fun and the atmosphere friendly!

Events

Craft Stick Crane: The goal is to design and build a crane using hot glue and craft sticks that can hold the most weight over the edge of a table. The farther the hanging weight is from the edge of the table, the higher the score!

Egg Bungee Jump: The goal is to safely have an egg bungee jump and get as close to the floor as possible. Scoring will be based on how close the egg comes to hitting the floor – but if it hits the floor and your egg is hurt, then your score is zero!

Bowling Ball Bash: The goal is to use some basic materials to build a device that will minimize the effect of a bowling ball crashing against a wall. The score will be based on the force that was put on the wall during the collision. May the smallest force win!
