The SPC has morphed into Isaac Physics, a DfE project run
from Cambridge University offering a wide range of free resources to to
teachers and to students in the 15 - 19 year age range.
We develop in students a deep understanding of physics through skills building
and problem solving, ideal preparation for physics, engineering, maths and
related subjects at top UK universities.
The Senior Physics Challenge residential summer school for Year 12 students
continues. Student places are now awarded for commitment and ability in
problem solving on Isaac Physics during the year. In 2018 it will run from the
afternoon of Monday 2nd July to the morning of Thursday 5th July. See here for
details. This year the deadline for application is May 1st 2018. More
details on how to apply for this course can be found here.
