The Swiss team won gold medals and placed second over-all in the tournament! With an 18 point lead, Switzerland entered the finals against New-Zealand and China Laplace Witches. During the final fight they placed second with a mere 1.2 point difference and was thus justly awarded gold medals along with the absolute winners (New-Zealand) for their fantastic performance.
The Astrophysicist, Dr. Stephen Armstrong, was invited to talk to 10 of our MYP2 students. Dr Armstrong answered questions about the beginning of the universe, multi-verse existence and black holes. Exciting stuff involving quite a bit of math, all parties thoroughly enjoyed it!
