ACS 10th Graders with Significant Physics Success
In addition to alleviated anti-epidemic measures, longer days and greener fields, the spring of 2021 brought notable success for three ACS 10-th grader physicists.
At the Spring National Physics Competition, where ACS is a traditional and formidable contender, Martin Lozanov earned second place and qualified for the European Olympiad for Experimental Sciences 2021. Teodora Marinova reached 7th place and Victor Velichkov – 18th. Nevertheless, in the 10th grade age group, the American College of Sofia team came in first place.
Meanwhile, Martin, Teodora and Victor spent numerous hours in preparation for the National Physics Olympiad. After overcoming both preliminary rounds, the three 10th grader physicists qualified for the National Round, where Victor ranked 4th, Martin – 8th and Teodora – 18th.
Thanks to his success in the Spring National Physics Competition, Martin took part in the European Olympiad for Experimental Sciences 2021. This elite competition was scheduled to take place at the University of Szeged in Hungary. Due to the pandemic, this year the teams solved experimental problems in their home countries, in our case - at Sofia University’s Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy. Martin’s team earned a bronze medal at the competition.
While congratulating Martin, Teodora and Victor for their shining success, we are even more excited for their future scientific achievements.
