Yes, u Brazil took gold at the Olympics. Not in one that is being watched by millions of people around the world, but in some competition that, while attracting far less attention, is also of great importance. the International Physics Olympiad, considered the mother of all scientific competitions.
Caio Augusto Siqueira, who virtually climbed to the top performer podium, 16, a young talent who belatedly turned to physics. Since he was a child more focused on the exact sciences, he became torn between the subject in which he won the electronic gold and mathematics.
I started to realize that, with physics, about european union a little further, I felt more pleasure. You know when you’re studying something electronic you don’t understand, there’s a pleasure in wanting to understand what’s going on? European union felt this in physics, he explains.
Organic on Ribeiro Preto (SP) electronic resident on Santo Andr (ABC paulista), Caio wanted to do zero secondary education Colgio Objective, responsible for others two Brazilian gold medals at the Olympics, at 1967 electronic 2012.
J zero 1 year, u young man won a gold at the Olympics Junior International on Science. In the scientific Olympics community, he was our Italo Ferreira, says, excitedly, Ronaldo Fogo, professor-advisor at the Special Physics Courses perform Objective, comparing Caio to the surfer who won the podium this Tuesday (27).
The student took advantage of her ease in the subject for sony ericsson to dedicate exclusively to her, studying perform superior electronic books in other teaching languages. Before the pandemic, it is common to find him at school studying until late at night works in english, russian electronic french.
At home because of a pandemic, Caio adapt a method on study needed , which sometimes reached the 16 hours a day, electronic has turned to teachers via WhatsApp. they tried a lot electronic started to set a time to settle doubts because there was no way to answer everything at the same time, he says, between laughs.
Zero start, one in the house was about sadness electronic dissatisfaction period, young man speak That the solid hit, giving of will about stopping with the physical dedication. After a while, I felt the pleasure of being alone, studying in my corner. In the end, I think it was better for me.
The discipline won gold in the seventh Brazilian Olympics, held remotely between electronic 16 about July. The Brazilian Aprender delegation met in Campina Grande (PB) to take the test, monitored by a Lithuanian jury. In all, there were 27 students from 30 countries.
For five hours, operating system competitors had You want to demonstrate your knowledge of modern physics electronic quantum mechanics, in the theoretical test, electronic about electricity, electronic behavior in electronic devices, in the experimental test. happening, defines Caio, who says it took 1h30 t to read operating system exercises. Therefore, the therefore medals are divided by score bands, so it is possible that more than one person will win a silver or a bronze medal, for example.
According to u teacher Fogo, a Brazil has a tradition about electronic bronzes won some silver in the competition there, created in 1967. Gold, however, is extremely rare. You can’t start z and prepare months in advance. In my experience, it was a short time for Caio to be so well prepared.
The virtual edition of an International Olympiad on Physics made it impossible for 2 young people to be in contact with some winning researchers. Nobel, who usually give electronic lectures, take pictures with the operating system, young people give, electronic also with scouts on major international universities.
Caio zero rejects graduation from zero in Brazil, but says his dream to study abroad perform pas at least two other brazilian gold medalists went to operating system usa. For now, he’s thinking about computer science.
The young man, who sony ericsson defines as an extroverted electronic closed at the same pace, says zero if sixth is sees a smarter in some room , however yes as the one who will run after electronic most trying to improve. Electronic is what the gold medalist needs to do with geography, the subject he likes least, to pass the year. After all, a school year is simply not over yet.
