The physics of fencing

Teams of sixth formers from schools across the South East visited Royal Holloway, University of London this week for a special science competition in celebration of the upcoming London 2012 Games.

It is one of a series of events held by the College to mark its involvement in the London 2012 Games as an official athlete village. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the College will be hosting the world’s elite rowers and sprint canoeists on campus.

The Olympic Physics Competition, organised by South East Physics Network (SEPnet) in conjunction with Royal Holloway, was themed around fencing, with the wider SEPnet competition focusing on different Olympic sports.

Schools and Colleges, including Tonbridge School (Kent), Langley Park School for Girls (Berkshire), and Strodes College (Surrey), were invited to enter teams of six students to the Olympic Physics Competition on Wednesday (16 November) to go head-to-head to discover the hidden physics in sport.
