About this day
For A level and IB students
Five sessions of phenomenal physics will be brought to you by the brightest lights in the field at Physics in Action this spring! Join us for a day full of inspiration, challenge and experimentation across the breadth of physics. A special session on examination success will provide students with the tools to excel, and there will be plenty of interactivity throughout the day – prepare for polls, quizzes and putting your questions to the scientists at Physics in Action!
Physics in Action will again be held both in person and live streamed ONLINE! Watch this space for speaker announcements coming soon.
