What is Fyziklani about?

Fyziklani is a physics team competition for high school students (or equivalent) interested in physics and solving interesting problems. Teams consist of up to five students (from the maximum of two schools). Their task is to solve as many problems as possible in the given time limit of three hours. Each team begins with the same seven problems. For each solved problem, they get a new, usually more difficult one. Any high school student or motivated primary school student can take part. Since 2018, it is possible to compete also in the English language and foreign teams can participate as well.

Who is behind the competition?

Fyziklani is held on behalf of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University (MFF CUNI) and Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MEYS). Organizers are mostly students of MFF CUNI, assembled in FYKOS (Internet Physics Competition). FYKOS also holds the online version of the competition – Physics Brawl Online, camps for best participants of the internet physics competition, excursions and other similar events.

Fyziklani could expand to this year's form also thanks to its general partner, the Neuron Endowment Fund. The main mission of Neuron EF is to support excellent scientists. It helps researchers in classrooms, helps them also in the field, connects science and business, appreciates excellent names.

Neuron became the general partner of Physics thanks to Lenka Zdeborová, a top Czech scientist working in Switzerland, who last won the Neuron Prize in Physics last year. Lenka Zdeborová was inspired in her scientific career also by correspondence seminar FYKOS and its events, which she herself took part in and also became involved as organizer. Therefore, she decided that the donation associated with the Neuron Award would be dedicated to the development of FYKOS.

When and where will it take place?

Fyziklání will take place 11.02.2022. Contrary to previous years, the competition be held in a larger hall – we will meet at PVA Letňany Exbihition Grounds in Prague, Czech Republic. The hall is located near (0.5 km) the final station of metro C line „Letňany“. We would like to invite around 200 teams, however, the capacity is due to change.

What are the current covid-19 measures?
