IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 10th March at 7 pm online. The theme: "Physics of Weather Forecasting". Large amounts of atmospheric data from satellites and from the earth are being collected all the time. Met Eireann uses this data and sophisticated computer models which simulate fundamental laws of Physics, to forecast the weather. At Hub-49 we look at how this relates to the Physics studied by our students. Book now at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-49/


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 3rd March at 7 pm online. The theme: Medical Physics. We hear from Dr. Deirdre King (Chief Physicist, Blackrock Clinic) about how Physics is used in hospitals.

IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 17th Feb at 7 pm online. The theme for this week is the Representation of women in LC Physics textbooks. We hear from Karen Pillion about her research entitled "The representation of women in Irish Leaving Cert Physics textbooks" published in the latest edition of Physics Education.

IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 10th Feb at 7 pm online. The theme for this week is WAVES. Waves feature extensively across the LC Physics course and students need a good understanding of the ideas involved. Booking is open at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-46/


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 3rd Feb at 7 pm online, will look at Tinkercad which is a free online platform and is very easy to use. They will focus on its use in teaching electrical circuits. Teachers will be shown how to create a class for students, assign them differentiated tasks centered around building circuits and monitor each individual student.


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 27th Jan at 7 pm online, looks at PhET simulations and how these free interactive resources enhance Physics. Suitable for lessons, Labs, homework, and self-directed learning, these simulations are intuitive and attractive. The latest HTML5 versions work easily and can be accessed on smartphones.

IOP Physics Hub will take place on Thursday 20th January at 7 pm online.
The theme is Graphs. The skills that students need to draw graphs and use them are very important in Physics.
