Physics in Concert
In this series of activities, students work in teams, learn about engineering by taking on different roles and learn how physics applies in the context of planning a music event. It does not require recruiting external “expert” help or taking students off-timetable, and the activities cover sound, electric circuits and light.
The resource was developed to encourage more students, particularly girls, to consider careers related to physics. Research shows that although girls can greatly benefit from activities which highlight careers and the real-word applications of physics, there is a need to provide information about engineering at an earlier age and to also make a clearer link between what is learnt in lessons and career opportunities in order to encourage greater uptake of physics post-16.
