Connect Physics

Commissioned by the South East Physics Network (SepNET), Connect Physics is a series of workshops designed to answer the questions: ‘What is Physics?’, ‘Why study Physics?’ and ‘How is Physics done?’.

The workshops are delivered by researchers and outreach officers, directly in schools, and as such were intended to be a flexible format that presenters could use as a baseline for their own ideas.

The ‘What?’ workshop takes the form of a game of connections, the ‘Why?’ session puts the students in the position of recruitment agents competing for graduates and the ‘How?’ part presents a seemingly impossible object that the students must use scientific thinking to decipher.

Connect Physics was released under a creative commons license and is now used by physics departments beyond the original SEPnet partner institutions.
