Physics in Perspective
This IOP-organised lecture series is the flagship event for 16 to 19 year-olds.
Aimed at 6th formers and college students, Physics in Perspective offers - in a period of just three days - insights to the many different aspects of modern physical science.
The last event occurred in February 2013 and it is due to return around the same time next year.
The speakers are chosen for their ability to make physics come alive, to illustrate its impact on our lives and to explore its potential to shape the future world with engineering and technology.
