Extension Physics is intended for AS and A2 level physics students who would like to investigate some topics, skills and practical activities that go beyond the standard curriculum.
It is not a physics course and there is no assessment. It is designed to be useful and interesting to those who might want to study physics or engineering at university, or maybe just want to look at some fun physicsy things.
If anyone would like to subscribe to Physics Review (£12.50 for four issues over one year OR £20 for eight issues over years) please see Mr Thompson before 3.30pm on Friday 25th September. Bring cash or a cheque made out to UVHS.
