Fyziklani International 8. – 14. 2. 2022

"Fyziklani International 2021 – Let's Discover European Physics" was an Erasmus+ project prepared for students from six different European countries interested in physics. Sixty participants – upper secondary students and their team leaders – went for a whole week to Prague where they learned many interesting things about the culture, science, and scientists of their countries. They also took part in excursions to various scientific facilities, went on a trip to the Science Centre iQLANDIA in Liberec, walked through the streets of the Czech capital during the Prague City Tour, and of course took part in the Fyziklani competition.

Although the event was supposed to take place in 2021, it was postponed until 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The project was financed by the Erasmus+ program (project no. 2020-2-CZ01-KA105-078617) and supported by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University.

Slovakia: Secondary grammar school of Jan Adam Rayman – a school with vast experience in physics competitions from regional to international level, including in the Physics Olympiad, Fyziklani, or Physics Naboj.

Poland: IV Liceum Ogolnoksztalcace im. Tadeusza Kosciuszki – each year ranked as one of the 100 best high schools in Poland according to the national ranking “Perspektywy”, the school participates in various exchange programs with the schools from Angers (France), and Philadelphia (the USA).

Finland: Turun Suomalaisen Yhteiskoulun lukio.

Romania: Two teams from four schools under the aegis of Colegiul National Mihai Eminescu Satu Mare.

Latvia: Biedrība Rīgas Valsts 1. ģimnāzijas skolēnu dalībai starptautiskos projektos – an informal group of students from the Riga State Gymnasium No. 1 with experience in multiple physics team competitions and top prizes in Latvian National Physics Olympiads.

UK: Tonbridge School – a prestigious boarding and day school for boys in Tonbridge. The participants have entered the Physics Brawl Online for the last 3 years as part of the school’s enrichment strategy which provides opportunities beyond the exam syllabus.

Sweden: Polhemskolan-Spets – an informal group consisting of two teams of students, many of whom are in the Sweden’s top education program in physics for high school students with a close collaboration with the university in Lund. – This partner is not able to take part in the project anymore due to the one-year postponement. The partner from Finland is a substitute for the partner from Sweden.

General Information

The full name of the project was Fyziklani International 2021 – Let's Discover European Physics. For easier administration, we applied as an informal group of FYKOS organisers. However, we cooperated with Charles University to coordinate this project and the Fyziklani competition.

The main goals of this project were

  • To extend the stay in Prague for groups (team + team leader) selected by partners of this project to 5 days.
  • To have the possibility to get to know each other better and create a social network of young people with an interest in Physics.
  • To share elementary information about the culture of the participating countries.
  • To improve knowledge of the scientists (especially physicists) of participating countries, scientific workplaces in Prague and neighbourhood
  • To enhance understanding of the contributions of the European Union to the science and EU in general.

Organizers secured:

  • Accommodation in mainly triple and double rooms, in the same hotel as for all other participants of Fyziklani.
  • Three meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). Breakfast was provided by the accommodation.
  • Tickets for the city public transport for the duration of the exchange. The necessary condition for the arrangement of the tickets is providing organizers with all the required information, including a photograph, before the deadline set by organizers.
  • Travel insurance for all the participants and team leaders.

Partners were responsible for:

  • Selection of the participants for the exchange, who had to be
    • at least 15 years old on the first day of the exchange,
    • studying at an upper secondary school,
    • from at most two different schools.
  • Publishing the information about the selection process on their website (if they have one).
  • Payment of a participant fee of 20 € per participant (excluding the team leader).
  • Buying travel tickets from their country to Prague and back. Expenses will be reimbursed retrospectively (up to the limit calculated by the Distance calculator of Erasmus+).
  • Preparation of a short video (around 150 s) about the partners' group, country or organization, which was presented at the opening ceremony of competition Fyziklani.
  • Preparation of food, dances, music, clothes, etc. typical for their county for the Evening of Nations.
  • Preparation of a presentation about science and famous scientists from their country (approx. 30 min), which was presented during the exchange.
  • Taking part in all activities of the exchange.
  • Creating at least two reports about the exchange after the event. At least one in their national language has to be published in their country (in an online magazine or at least on the webpage of their organization), one (in English) will be sent to the organizers for further promotion of the activities done.

We strongly recommended to all participants to get vaccinated against COVID-19 before the exchange, as it can be very difficult to travel abroad, be accommodated in a hotel etc. without being fully vaccinated or being frequently tested.

All online preparation meetings were held via Zoom, as agreed by all the partners.

The original date of the youth exchange was postponed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
