The Université de Sherbrooke recently hosted the fourth edition of the Physics Games, co‑sponsored by Bertrand Reulet, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Quantum Signal Processing at the university.
Some 160 participants took part in the competition, which provided friendly rivalry for undergraduate and graduate students of physics and engineering physics from all 10 such university programs in Quebec.
“Seeing the students become so involved in the Physics Games—working together with great enthusiasm to share their passion for physics—is part of the reason I became a teacher,” said Reulet.
The Physics Games provide participants with an excellent opportunity to meet other students, build a network of contacts and learn about what other Quebec universities are doing in the field. They are the largest gathering of physics and engineering physics students in Quebec, and provide a shop window for any organization on the lookout for future employees, students or collaborators.
