Indonesian Science Project Olympiad


Physics actually covers all subjects in the world. If you have any idea related with any subject, don’t worry you can be sure it is a physics subject. But our project must be based on physical knowledge. For example if you have a project about air pollution, even it is related to biology, you can make it physics project by using physical method. To making easy your investigation, here you are some popular topics about physics project competition.

Energy Conservation 

Energy conservation is the most important subject in science and engineer world. Energy conservation is different to energy efficiency in that it uses less energy to achieve a lesser energy service, and usually requires behavioral change. If we find any applicable way to conserve energy, we will take important place in this world.

Physic application in Engineering 
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the construction and design of public and private sector works such as bridges, roads, dams and buildings by using static knowledge. Electrical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the technology of electricity, especially the design and application of circuitry. For example we can help them with finding new method to get electric energy. Mechanical engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the application of principles of physics for analysis, design, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineers use these principles and others in the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating & cooling systems and more.

Robotics is the science and technology of robots which cannot be separated from physics.

Thermodynamics involves the physics of the relationships and conversions between heat and other forms of energy. According to rules of thermodynamics energy cannot be used in 100% efficiency but we can increase the efficiency and we can recycle the wasted energy
