Careers Week 2021 may be over but you can enjoy the recordings from the three panel sessions featuring an amazing range of speakers.

As part of National Careers Week 2021, we offered a stimulating programme of online events for young people and their teachers to discover what doing physics can open up and how our careers can address some of the big global challenges that young people care about.

Over the week, a total of 885 students and teachers attended our events, representing 74 schools across the UK and Ireland, with 33 physicists generously offering to share their expertise and experiences.

Our 2021 programme was themed around the role of physics and physicists in addressing global challenges and included three online panel discussions, which you can watch recordings of below.

Find out more about Limit Less

To support young people to change the world, we need to limit less and support them more.

No young person should be made to feel locked out of physics. Help us ensure that there are no limits on who can take part.
