The story so far

The IOP’s East Anglia Branch has already held two successful 3 Minute Wonder events

The first competition was held in 2012 at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, to give members the chance to learn about cutting edge physics-based research in an exciting and novel way. It was also an opportunity to meet the IOP’s president, Sir Peter Knight, and hear him speak about the Institute’s Physics for All education campaign.         

Overwhelming positive feedback saw the branch run a second event in 2013, where members met the IOP’s new Chief Executive, Dr Paul Hardaker.    

Now 3 Minute Wonder is back – and it’s bigger than ever before. Later this year the IOP plans to run a number of regional 3 Minute Wonder competitions. The winner from each of these regional heats will go through to a grand final at the IOP’s central London offices.
