The 2013 Hawaii Physics Olympics will be held at the UH Kapiolani CC campus near Diamond Head in Honolulu. About 30 teams of high school students from several schools on Oahu will be challenged by five fun events based on concepts in physics. The events are designed and run by students from UH Manoa, UH Kapiolani CC, UH Leeward CC, Brigham Young Univ. Hawaii, and Chaminade Univ. About 120 high school students are expected to participate.

In addition to the five required events, there will be an optional bridge building contest. Testing of bridges entered will be done in the KCC Cafeteria (Ohia) throughout the morning.
