Take part

We run public engagement activities throughout the year and are looking for physicists to take part. Find out more below.

Lab in a Lorry

Lab in a lorry

Lab in a Lorry is a mobile science lab that gives young people the chance to explore science through hands-on experiments while being guided by volunteers who want to share their passion for science and their curiosity about the world we live in. We are taking the lab to Wales on our next tour and need volunteers to help. 

To sign up and find out more information visit the Lab in a Lorry website.

Physics in the field

Each summer, we put on our wellies and waterproofs and head to festivals and shows with a fantastic team of volunteers. By performing physics tricks at non-science events we aim to raise awareness of physics among people who wouldn’t normally choose to seek out science.

To volunteer or find events near you, sign up to our mailing list.
