Oxford Physics, St John's College and British Physics Olympiad invite school physics teachers to attend the first Oxford Physics Teachers Conference.

The event provides the opportunity to find out about advances in cutting edge physics and provides guidance and resources on helping your students to develop advanced problem solving skills in physics. Example physics problems will be explored along with simple demonstrations that are designed to challenge students into new ways of thinking.

The session will also include insight into what top universities are looking for when selecting a candidate, and how to develop these skills, which are required for further study.
