Physics in the Field

Physics in the Field

It’s time to put away your wellies and waterproofs – Physics in the Field is finished for summer 2014. But we'll be back soon for 2015!

This year's tour of the UK and Ireland was hugely successful but the Institute’s physics in society team, along with our local branches and a band of student volunteers will be bringing physics to a field near you in summer 2015.

The team will be performing physics tricks – hand-held demos using things you can find at home – and making sure you get a go too. Some of the tricks are messy, some are noisy, but all of them are guaranteed crowd pleasers that help to illustrate different areas of physics.

If you want to try the tricks yourself you can find tips on how to perform them in our Physics to Go pack and a brand new trick is added to our Marvin and Milo series every month.

As soon as events are confirmed we'll add them here so keep checking back here for more details.

By performing physics tricks at non-science events we aim to raise awareness of physics among people who wouldn’t normally choose to seek out science. So if you’ve seen us at one of these events, why not drop us a line and tell us what your favourite physics trick is? Email us at
