IOP for Africa

IOP for Africa banner 2011

Through the dissemination of physics, we aim to support local communities towards greater opportunities for the future.

How the IOP makes a difference

  • We train local teachers to enhance their subject knowledge and their practical skills
  • We provide ICT and experimental equipment and set up local resource centres, available to communities within a broad surrounding area
  • We encourage students to make the most of the opportunities physics has to offer
  • We train local craftsmen to build experimental equipment and manage the resource centres we develop, facilitating self-sustainability and enhancing employment.
