The Ateneo League of Physicists (Ateneo LeaPs) is the sole Physics-based organization of the Ateneo Community. United under a common passion for curiosity and ingenuity, we are a group of enthusiasts intent on unearthing our human connection to physics as our portal to understanding the universe. It is our hope that our appreciation of the science translates to the advancement of a unique wave of social relevance and positive social change.
We, the Ateneo League of Physicists take pride in breaking things. We break what people might think of the world of physics – that physics is simply confined to the realm of cold and enigmatic notions. We break barriers and reach out to the scientist hiding inside every Atenean. And most importantly, we break gravity’s hold on us, as we take the Leap.
V I S I O N
The Ateneo League of Physicists envisions itself as a community of physics enthusiasts – curious, innovative, and empowered to synergize the study physics and its applications to further social change.
M I S S I O N
The Ateneo LeaPs aims to encourage the pursuit of a deeper understanding of physics, to convey the relevance of physics in society, and to serve as a bridge between physics enthusiasts inside and outside the Ateneo.
- Physics Excellence
- Physics Appreciation
- LeaPs stands for League of Physicists hence the name.
- The star of our logo is not the way the word “LeaPs” is written but what is behind it.
- Academic support in the form of one-on-one or small group tutorials to problem solving sessions by special request. We also have study aides such as formulae sheet, sample long-tests, books both hard and soft copy, and problem solving flowcharts.
- Physics demos
Da Vinci Olympiad
During the peaks of annual meteor showers like the Geminids and Perseids, the Ateneo Leaps invites the LS public to a free viewing with astronomical instruments in the nearby Manila Observatory.
Da Vinci Olympiad
The Da Vinci Olympiad is a fun, fast-paced team game that is open to the LS public, wherein teams compete in a variety of activities that make use of basic principles of classical physics.
The House Cup is a year-long engagement in competitive comradery. From engineering gizmos together to accomplishing crazy house tasks in a healthy combination of good clean fun and out-of-whack mayhem.
