Physics Teachers' Conference
Book your place on to the Physics Teacher's Conference where you will find out how your classroom teaching can benefit from the range of hands-on activities offered by the Physics outreach programme. Take part in interactive lab sessions using experimental approaches that modern scientists follow to answer the ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions in science.
During the conference, you’ll:
- hear from leading academics in the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences
- network with other teachers
- attend specialist sessions in your subject area.
This free conference also includes lunch. Book your place today
