IAPS School Day

The IAPS School Day (ISD) is the main IAPS outreach activity! Around the 10th of November, every year since 2015, physics students, members of IAPS visit schools and demonstrate several physics experiments under the same physics topic! It is our IAPS way of celebrating the World Science Day for Peace and Development!

Every year the IAPS AGM chooses the topic of the next year edition of the IAPS School Day! The topics of ISD have been and will be the following:

  • 2015, Light (within the celebrations of the International Year of Light IYL 2015)
  • 2016, Environment and Energy
  • 2017, Acoustics
  • 2018, Particle Physics
  • 2019, Elements and Materials (within the celebrations of the International Year of the Periodic Table IYPT 2019)

For the past editions we have had the combined participation of 12 countries, spanning 3 continents. IAPS supports ISD activities through an ISD grant, opened every year usually around October. More information can be found here. The 2018 edition of the grant is already CLOSED.

In 2018, the ISD is being celebrated on the 9th and 12th of November, under the topic Particle Physics. If you are interested in participating in this local international activity, please email edu@iaps.info, with information about your event in order to be added to our database and shared with our worldwide community!

Join IAPS in spreading the word about how amazing Physics is!
