Engaging Physicists

Welcome to Engaging Physicists, the simplest way of finding physics speakers, workshops and activities for your school, college or community group.

Engaging Physicists is designed to take the hassle and uncertainty out of finding the right physicist for your event by linking you with specialist outreach officers. Each university and national laboratory on the database has nominated an outreach officer who has an understanding of the needs of both schools and physicists, enabling them to find your perfect match.

All activities offered through Engaging Physicists are free of charge (except in some cases where travel expenses may need to be paid).

About this project

Engaging Physicists is coordinated by the Institute of Physics on behalf of the physics community.

Our aim is to facilitate links between physicists and schools and community groups in order to improve the quality of physics outreach across the UK and Ireland.

Each organisation maintains their own entry to the database, so if you have any feedback or questions for a particular organisation, please contact them directly in the first instance. For general feedback on Engaging Physicists as a whole, please email
