Cambridge Physics Centre Sixth Form Lecture Schedule

Cambridge Physics Centre: Online Lecture Programme 2020/21

Supported by the Cavendish Laboratory, the Institute of Physics and the Department of Engineering.


This lecture series is aimed at those in years 12 and 13, and exists to enthuse, stimulate and challenge students and their teachers across the whole broad spectrum of physics-related topics.  Previously a live event at the Cavendish Laboratory, we will be streaming the lectures via the Isaac Physics website until social distancing measures are relaxed.

An interactive Isaac Physics problem solving session starts at 4pm, lectures start at 5pm and finish by 6pm. There is no need to book these lectures, you can just log in on the day. 

If you wish to be informed of future talks, please sign up to the mailing list.
