The Institute of Physics in partnership with the University of York have organised an exciting event called “Physics at Work”, which will take place on Tuesday 11th December 2018. The event is based on the event run by the University of Cambridge (of the same name). Students will hear from employers about the value of studying physics at GCSE/A-level and beyond and try out hands-on activities that give a taste of the many ways physics contributes to the UK economy.
There will be a range of workshops run throughout the day, hosted by businesses in different sectors of industry who employ physicists. The event is for students in years 8 or 9 and a maximum of 20 places are available per school. Location, schedule and other logistic information can be found on the ‘More Information’ page.
Applications are now open and will operate on a first come first serve basis.
