Artful Physics: A competition for UK Primary and Secondary Schools
Artful Physics is a national competition for UK primary and secondary school students inviting them to create an artistic piece that engages young people in physics and astronomy and inspires future scientists. The demonstrator’s main aim is to give pupils across a wide age range the opportunity to create a piece of art work that explains a key concept in physics. By doing so, they will both enhance their understanding of physics and develop their interest in an element of physics beyond the possibilities available within class time, whilst developing their artistic understanding and skill. The final stage of the competition involves prize winner events hosted by RAL/STFC with a ‘money-can’t-buy’ prize (e.g. firing the RAL laser).
