PHYSICS+ is our FREE, online four day summer school for Year 11 students who like Physics and are keen to keep studying Physics beyond their GCSE's.


  • Are you in year 11?
  • Do you like Physics?
  • Are you interested in doing Physics A Level next year?

The course will consist of four days of fun-filled Physics.

You will:

  • Solidify your understanding of physics and learn lots of new things with experienced, skilled and knowledgeable physics teachers.
  • Spend time developing your understanding of practical physics from the comfort of your own home laboratory – equipment provided.
  • Develop your capacity to think like a physicist and solve unfamiliar problems.
  • Hear from some actual physicists to further inspire your interest in the subject.
  • Spend a day with us and your fellow physicists at the Science Museum completing challenges.


Monday 12 July to Thursday 15 July 2021, 09:30 to 15:00 each day.


The sessions will be run online via Zoom. Students will need a phone, tablet or laptop to participate in the sessions. Wednesday will be in person at the Science Museum, Exhibition Road.
