David Cebolla Ruiz, BSA student, Bronze Medal in the national phase of the Physics Olympiads

The Physics Olympiad is an international competition in which students from many countries take part and which is organised by the Royal Spanish Physics Society (RSEF) in its national phase. The Universitat de València – through the Faculty of Physics and the Delegation for University Incorporation – as well as the Universitat Politècnica, are in charge of the local phase of the competition in Valencia, which was held at the beginning of March and consisted of a written test of physics problems and exercises.

The four students from the Valencian delegation, including David Cebolla, in Lugo participated in a three-hour experimental test and a four-hour theoretical test with three problems, where David came third and won the Bronze Medal.

In addition to the four students who took part in the national competition and given their excellent results, the local olympiad committee awarded three honourable mentions, including María Guerrero Jiménez, a BSA student who also took part in the semi-final and narrowly missed out on qualification.
