Physics: a science that deal with matter and energy and their interactions in the fields of mechanics, acoustics, optics, heat, electricity, magnetism, radiation, atomic structure, and nuclear phenomena.
Olympics: an ancient Panhellenic festival held every 4th year and made up of contests of sports, music, and literature; Olympic Games: a modified revival of the Olympian games held once every four years and made up of international athletic contests.
Combine these two and you have the annual YSU Physics Olympics, a gathering of high school students in competition designed to strengthen the mind, to demonstrate physics in applied settings, and to have fun.
