Classroom Physics

March’s Classroom Physics focuses on the seasons. There are many misconceptions in this topic, so our pull-out is full of activities designed to help build students’ understanding of how the seasons actually come about. THE GREAT SCIENCE TEACHING SURVEY
Fill in the new annual IOP-RSC-RSB survey to help us build a detailed picture of secondary science teaching. How many specialist physics teachers are there? How confident are others with teaching physics? And is there enough technician support? IOP SUPPORT: pillars of the community
Our new approach centres on ensuring no student feels excluded from physics with all students accessing a world-class education. TikTok is one new route we’re using – Charles Tracy explains what else we’re doing.
