Hands-on Physics

This course is most appropriate for a region, cluster or community of schools. Please contact us if your organisation is interested in arranging or hosting.

With the arrival of the new Stage 6 Physics Syllabus, we have created a course, Hands-on Engagement for Stage 6 Physics, to empower Stage 6 physics teachers with providing their students with novel hands-on experiences and experiments to engage them in their study of physics.

Delegates will in engage in a carousel of achievable, innovative and hands-on physics experiments designed to provide rich opportunities for learning in a high school setting. The activities incorporated will cover those pertinent to the new syllabus, paying particular attention to learning opportunities in the Depth Studies.
