IOP Physics Hub – Astrophysics


Event Details


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 9th February at 7 pm online. The theme is Astrophysics, which is the application of the laws of physics to everything that lies outside our planet. Concepts like Newton's law of universal gravitation, nuclear fusion, electromagnetic waves, Doppler shift, etc. learned in classrooms apply throughout the universe. Book now at: https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-69/ Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.

IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 2nd February at 7 pm online. The theme: Physics Olympiad. We look at some of the freely available resources to challenge even the ablest students of LC Physics. Book now at: https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-68 Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 26th January at 7 pm onlineShort clips of science fiction movies will be viewed and used to study the underlying physics at a level appropriate for Leaving Cert students. For example, Spiderman stops a runaway train and use it to learn about energy, force and Hooke's Law. Back to the Future to learn about Newton's Laws, and James Bond has a few things to teach us about specific latent heat and heat capacities. Book now at: https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-67/ Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 19th  January at 7 pm online. The topic will be Physics Diagram Editing. Finding the right physics diagram can take more time than editing one you already have. We look at how to use basic editing tools within Microsoft Paint which is free and probably on most laptops if they already have Word and Powerpoint.
Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.

IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 12th January at 7 pm online. Physics used in Forensic Science which is a crucial part of CSI crime scene investigations is the theme. Book now at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-65/


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 1st December at 7 pm online. The theme is Isaac Physics. This free online resource develops student confidence with problem-solving in Physics. This Hub offers both an introduction to those who haven't used Isaac and a refresher for those who may not have used it recently.

Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.

IOP Physics Hub will be on Thursday 24 November at 7 pm online. We hear from Michelle O'Brien about a new resource for students and teachers of Physics. Booking at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-63/ Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.


IOP Physics Hub will be on Thursday 10th November at 7 pm online. We look at Ideas for Science Week 2022. Book now at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-62/ Teachers of JC Science and newly qualified teachers are especially welcome.


The next IOP Physics Hub will be after mid-term on Thursday 10th November at 7 pm online. Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 20 October at 7 pm online with the theme "Success breeds Success". Book now at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-61/
We look at strategies for developing student fluency in LC Physics exam paper questions.
Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 13th October at 7 pm online on the theme of Nuclear Fusion.
Newly qualified teachers and teachers of JC Science are especially welcome.

IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 22nd September at 7 pm online on the theme of the SOPHia Project. Dr. Sarah Guerin will speak about the SOPHia competition for schools. Students can present an idea to be launched into inner space or physics in the world around us or tell about a woman in physics. Book now at https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-58/


IOP Physics Hub on Thursday 15th September at 7 pm online will look at "Energy Needs" and related issues that will impact all of us in the times ahead.
Book now at: https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-57/


IOP Physics Hub looks at "Time" on Thursday 8th September at 7 pm online.
Book now at:  https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-56/
Time is interwoven through most topics in Physics and phrases like "rate of change" and words like frequency, are challenging for some students. They explore the issue of time in school Physics.


IOP Physics Hub looks at "Ideas for TY" on Thursday 1st September at 7 pm online.
Book now at: https://www.talkphysics.org/events/iop-ireland-physics-hub-55/
TY offers a valuable opportunity to attract students to choose Physics for Leaving Certificate.
