Saturday, January 15th 2022

There will be 2 locations with the same competition events.  Teams choose 1 location to attend.  

North/Central NJ:    Monmouth Regional High School, Tinton Falls, NJ

NJ Physics Olympics 2022 --- North / Central New Jersey

Thank you for attending the Olympics and for all your support. 

Special acknowledgement  to Matt D'Amato and Monmouth Regional HS for hosting the Olympics, Jim Ferrara and Daniel Kaplan for developing the Fermi Questions, Jessica Godkin for tallying the scores and to the instructors who judged the individual events.  Your gift of time to your students can not be measured but is truly awesome.

And of course, a very special thank you to the students who worked so hard and gave up so much time to participate in the Olympics.  Your hard work is an inspiration to all of your instructors.

As stated yesterday, the location of next year's Olympics will not be at Monmouth Regional HS.  Once a new location is chosen, we will send out a notice.

Attached is the score sheet and the Fermi Question Solutions. Teams are identified by number only.  If you have forgotten your team number, please email me.  I will delete from my records team names in a month or so except for the winning teams.

Please make sure I have your media release forms so that we can include pictures of your team on our website.

Southern NJ:            Timber Creek High School,  Sicklerville, NJ   (Camden County)
