The Make Happen Virtual Physics Subject Taster introduces students to what is Physics, why do Physics and how to do Physics. Designed for Y7-Y9 students, it is playful and light-hearted containing has lots of resources from well-established Physics outreach organisations, such as SEPnet and the Institute of Physics.

The Make Happen Virtual Physics Subject Taster is split across 4 days. Every day has at least a few practical experiments you can do at home and one worksheet to fill in. Here’s what each day looks like:
Day 1 – What is Physics
This day is filled with interesting online quizzes, cool Physics videos and a “Find the Connections” game, where students explore how Physics relates to their everyday life, the Universe and everything.
Day 2 – What is Physics like at University
This day goes from Physics topics at school to Physics topics at University. Students explore degrees and courses on offer, from the essential Mathematics one needs to do Physics to out-of-this-world courses, such as Quantum Mechanics and Dark Matter. Useful practical information is supplied about Universities offering Physics in a 100-mile radius from Essex and selected virtual tours and Open Days are collected together for you to enjoy.
This Subject Taster takes place on online through Showbie meaning you can access it at any time to complete at your own pace. To sign up please click below to visit our website and complete the registration form.
Day 3 – Why do Physics
Have you thought of how many career paths Physics can lead to? From Financial model builders to game designers and from energy engineers to virtual effects technicians, there is a breadth and wealth of potential careers and Day 3 of this subject taster is here to help unravel them! The day also includes a recruiting game, where you will match skills to job descriptions and get their candidates hired!
Day 4 – How to do Physics
This day starts from two Physics subjects that you may learn about at school (waves and light) and then combines them to lead you into a research project based on spectroscopy. How do we know what stars are made of? How can we analyse the atmospheres of planets too far away to reach? And how is this related to putting together a spectroscope and indulging in a research project at home?
