Organization Profile

The UP Physics Association (UPPA), founded in 1980, is the official academic organization in the University of the Philippines Diliman primarily dedicated to the promotion and advancement of Physics in and out of the University. Recognizing itself as an agent of the University in the pursuit of higher standards of academic performance and service to the Filipino science community, the UPPA has been a venue for Physics enthusiasts to come together for the fulfilment of sacred thrust of leadership, rendition of service to the people and integration of Physics students into the university culture.

For more than 30 years, the UPPA has been actively holding various activities mainly intended for the manifestation of its goals. Since 2004, when the first PISIKAalaman, an annual Physics Quiz Bee for high school students in the National Capital Region, was held, the UPPA has been earnestly striving for the development and expansion of the event, for the association believes that through this, it is able to provide a channel for the students to excel and appreciate the beauty of Physics outside their classroom. And with utmost pride, the UPPA imparts the success of Philippine Young Physicists’ Tournament, a nationally accredited version of the International Young Physicists’ Tournament also known as the Physics World Cup. These are just few of the many undertakings the organization holds in the firm belief that an understanding of the nature of the physical universe shall benefit all humanity.

This is the UP Physics Association, bringing fun to Physics life!
