Student Resources

The references page contains phenomenon demonstrations, links to encyclopedias, forum discussions, books and lecture notes, and most importantly academic journals. The references are submitted by our collaborators all over the world and are reviewed by the CaYPT committee before being added to our repository. These references will help to start your research. Feel free to look for additional references as your research progresses. 

The past IYPT finals is a good place to find some of the best solutions to past problems. Watching the finals is a great way to learn about presentation techniques, presentation organization, and experimental physics techniques that can be applied to similar problems.

Note that since 2017 a new scoresheet is adopted. Finals recorded are also available on YouTube. 

These are the recordings of Team Canada in past IYPTs. These presentations are not as complete as the finals, but they can serve as examples of presentations that will be very competitive at CaYPT.

Here you can find the past IYPT reference kits and crowdsource reference page in a PDF format. If there is a current problem that is similar to a past problem, it could be helpful to look through the old references.
