What is PLANCKS?

PLANCKS stands for "Physics League Across Numerous Countries for Kick-ass Students". In this competition, students solve 10 theoretical physics problems in teams of 3 or 4. One team from each country is allowed to compete. In many countries this team is determined by national competitions, in Germany this is DOPPLERS. In addition to the competitive exam, the focus is on international exchange between the participating students. The programme is complemented by lectures, held by renowned scientists. For more information have a look at the iaps webpage!
