FREE ENTRY family science fun day!

IOP PhysicsFest 2022

FREE ENTRY family science fun day! Lots of interactive physics demonstrations and activities for all ages.

Please book your free ticket to attend:

Please note that there is no parking at KEGS for this event – if required, parking is available in the Rectory Lane car park over the road.

Institute of Physics (IOP) East Anglia Branch

The event is an afternoon of interactive and educational engagement for children of all ages, and is inspired entirely by experiments. The event is completely free and open to the public. Visitors will have the opportunity to try out lots of interesting and engaging activities, mostly hands-on, with 6th form physics students on hand to explain what is going on in each experiment.

The event is nominally aimed at children from around 6 to 14 years old, but there will be things to interest older children too, as well as their parents.

We hope lots of people will book a free ticket via the website, We may be able to welcome people on the door as well, but naturally visitors with bookings will take precedence.

Primary schools may like to get some Y5 or Y6 children to give an assembly to the rest of the school. For use in this assembly, or in any other way you like, here are two links to videos of past PhysicsFests:
