Physics: The Eurekas Limit Less Challenge
Thursday 27 April 2023
LEWIS BUTLER, TEACHER OF PHYSICS
This week the Physics department have become a part of the Eurekas Limit Less Challenge. The Eurekas is an annual physics awards programme for students aged 11-16 in the UK and Ireland to showcase the value of Physics and to inspire students to see physics differently. It is a part of the Limit Less campaign, which has been conceived by the Institute of Physics (IOP) to broaden and diversify the range of people doing Physics after age 16.
This year’s entry requirements ask students to be creative in presenting a piece which showcases ‘How Physics fuels your passion’. Previous years entries have seen posters, blogs, short videos , and even baked goods take home some big money prizes (£250-£1000!), all whilst raising the awareness of the importance of physics in everyday life.
More guidance on how to enter can be found here. There is also a display outside rooms P1 and P2 in the Science block. To enter, students require parent/carer consent and there is a simple form found here, which will need to be completed by parents and carers for any entries made. A short piece of writing of 150-200 words should accompany each submission describing the submission and the link to how physics fuels your passion.
Below are some previous winning and runners up entries from across the country.
Good luck everyone, and once you have submitted your entry please also remember to email a copy to Mr Butler so it can be showcased at Q too.
