About

Launched in 2017, this non-profit organization is run by alumni of Princeton University who founded and organized the first Princeton University Physics Competition. While the operation of Physics Unlimited is entirely independent of Princeton University, the required level of coordination with relevant organizers of PUPC is maintained where appropriate in order for our events to succeed.

At present, Physics Unlimited is in charge of overseeing four types of events:

  1. (New!) the Moonshot Program, an innovative physics curriculum designed to motivate underrepresented target audiences;
  2. the Explorer Competition, a research-based online assignment that students have a week to complete;
  3. the Premier Competition, a single-session, 1.5-hour international version of PUPC;
  4. the PhysiKarma initiative in partnership with Expii, an ongoing, academically rewarding - and stress-free - way to demonstrate your physics knowledge; PhysiKarma earners will be recognized on the 15th day of each month.
