Submission + - New International Undergraduate-Level Physics Comp (

RobertFisher writes: A new international undergraduate-level physics competition sponsored by the American Physical Society and the American Astronomical Society has been announced. Over the November 5th weekend, teams of three students will delve into a conceptually-rich an open-ended problem, with open access to books, journals, computer programs they've written, and the internet. The top 30% of all written reports will be recognized as either gold, silver, or bronze winners. This will be a ton of fun for any student interested in physics. Computer scientists have long had the ACSL contest, and mathematicians the Putnam competition. Why should they have all the fun?
