“This year’s competition has so far been very tense and side by side – several teams scored the same number of points in the competition, so they received an additional task to determine the semi-finalists. So far, the students have successfully coped with 10 warm-up rounds and 24 tasks of varying difficulty in the selection round, proving their knowledge of and around physics, as well as renewable energy resources. I am glad that this year the students achieved excellent results in the three practical tasks as well, – the answers to them cannot be found either on the Internet, from the teacher or in a book, but only by conducting practical experiments,” says Raitis Streičs, manager of the Fizimix.lv portal.

The semifinals and finals of the competition “FIZMIX Experiments” will take place on April 13 in person during the Latvian Physics Festival. Out of 60 teams, the best team of each region will be determined in the semi-finals, which will fight for valuable prizes in the final. This year’s main prize is a trip to Switzerland to visit the European Center for Nuclear Research CERN – the world’s leading scientific center and its famous Large Hadron Collider, as well as to visit the Swiss Science Center “Technorama”.

On April 13, in Riga, the ATTA center will host the biggest Latvian Physics Festival so far, where both children and young people, as well as adults, will have the opportunity to get to know the amazing and exciting world of physics. This year, the Physics Festival will delight visitors with a scientific and entertaining free program that will fascinate both young and old visitors. Throughout the day, there will be activities for young and old, which will be provided by all Latvian science and curiosity centers, various technical creativity and interest groups, the largest Latvian universities and other educational institutions. There will also be an opportunity to listen to stories about Latvian scientific achievements in physics and engineering, as well as learn about Latvia’s contribution to space exploration. At the end of the event, the group “Astro’n’out” will delight all visitors with a concert.

The main goal of the student erudition competition “FIZMIX Experiment” is to promote interest in the exact sciences and to show in an engaging way how the theoretical knowledge learned at school can be used in practice and where it can be useful in the future when choosing various professions and career opportunities. This year, the contest tasks were prepared by the experts of Riga Technical University – young scientists, teachers and physics enthusiasts. The slogan of this year’s erudition competition reads “Who then, if not You! Spring into the future with the FIZMIX Experiment!”, encouraging young people and everyone to think about the fact that the quality of our future life on planet Earth is in our own hands, as well as inviting students to look at the competition as an opportunity to acquire knowledge that will be useful in his future choices, be it a career and a profession or a sustainable lifestyle.
