    Physics at home

    Ideas for students learning Physics at home. Suitable for the 14-16 age range. Compiled by colleagues at the Institute of Physics.

    For students working remotely because of school closures, or during school holidays. These ideas are divided by physics topic. We hope this saves time right now, along with the Physics project ideas for 11-14 links. The activities are not the standard school physics practicals (which would not be advised due to safety) and have all been safety-checked. BUT, it is still advised that you do your own risk assessment.
