"In each of them, students will be asked to find their own solution or explanation to the simplest physical phenomena, for example, the refraction of light in water or the properties of a soap film", – is specified in the message.

It is added that in 2018, 30 teams from different cities of Russia participated in the stages of the tournament, while the tournament is held for students of 9-11 grades from more than 30 countries of the world.
