Magnetism, collisions, plasma: explain it all when you get involved with outreach activities at the IOP.

The IOP organise and attend events across the UK and Ireland to bring physics to new audiences. We’re always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to showcase experiments and convey their passion for physics to a wide range of people. If you are interested in hearing about volunteering opportunities in your region/s please sign up below. Alternatively, you can look for upcoming opportunities on our events site.

Volunteer and member expenses

As part of being a volunteer with the IOP, it’s important that you’re never out of pocket from undertaking activity on our behalf. Any out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed. Please download the expenses claim form and email your relevant 'approver'.
