Program Overview

The individual selection stage permits students to submit their work in a scientific report/manuscript format. This stage determines students’ eligibility to participate in IYPT 2024 as a part of Team Canada. Each of the eligible teams can submit a maximum of 10 reports to be judged, one for each CaYPT problem. The reports are then graded by a panel of internal and external graders. The CaYPT Organizing Committee (COC) will announce the winner of the individual selection stage. Top students from this stage become IYPT Team Candidates and may be considered by the COC to represent Canada in the IYPT.
