We want everyone to be able to experience the wonder of physics. Whether it’s a tasty demo on the physics of ice cream, trying your hand at quantum computing or a trip to our annual Festival of Physics, our outreach programme has something for everyone.
We’re committed to supporting groups under-represented in higher education, encouraging them to consider university.
We’re proud to be part of the SS Great Britain’s Future Brunels Programme which aims to inspire young people in Bristol to study STEM subjects.
Designed to inspire the physicists of tomorrow, our schools programme aims to support primary and secondary teachers in the delivery of their curriculums and includes talks, workshops, build your own kits, placements and summer schools.
We offer pupils week-long work experience placements working in our labs and spending time with our researchers.
Festival of physics
Our free annual family festival ran in collaboration with the Institute of Physics celebrates all things physics. Held at our HH Wills Laboratory here in Bristol the day is packed with talks, fun experiments and much more. Find out more.
Give quantum computing a go
Our project Quantum in the Cloud gives everyone the chance to experience the power of a quantum computer. Our online simulator means anyone can try running their own quantum physics experiments and gain practical experience of manipulating information using quantum computers.
