2022 International ‘Safe Cracking’ Physics Tournament

After placing third in the national round and qualifying for the international competition, St Paul’s School’s team ‘GTW’ attended this year’s virtual International ‘Safe Cracking’ Physics Tournament over the Easter break.

The tournament, run by Weizmann Institute of Science, is a Physics and Engineering competition in which teams of five Year 12 students design and build physics-based puzzles, and attempt to crack others’ designs.

The team placed 1st overall out of 44 entrants – winning the international competition.

While teams have come close in recent years, placing first nationally in 2019, it is not since 2016 that St Paul’s has celebrated an international victory.

Team members: Kiminao, Oliver, Harry, Eliyahu and Owais.

The team produced a short video explaining their design.
