On Weds 16 October, four Year 13 Physicists took part in the Malvern College Physics Olympics, competing against schools from all sectors in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.
Ten teams were given very difficult Fermi questions to complete throughout the day, alongside tackling six 25 minute practical tasks which rigorously tested, challenged and stretched their Physics skills. The winners were announced after a talk from Dr Davide Gerosa (Lecturer in Gravitational Wave Astronomy from the University of Birmingham) and JMHS were proud to take first place, beating some very stiff competition.
A huge well done to Ben Davies, Will Flaherty, Mitch Robinson and Tom Williams who showed real star quality at the event. A big thank you to Mrs Williams-Hewitt and Mr Crossley who organised the team and accompanied the students.
