PiA - Physics in Advent 2019

Under the motto "still 24 experiments until Christmas" 24 entertaining physics experiments are offered to do yourself, which are provided in a German and an English version.

PiA Physics in Advent 2019

PiA is designed for pupils in the school years five to ten, i.e. aged 11 to 18 years, respectively. After the experiences of the previous years, parents, teachers, students or simply those interested in physical phenomena also have great pleasure in it. This year, adults in companies, departments and circles of friends are once again invited to join in as a team and puzzle. From 1 to 24 December, everyone can watch a simple experiment on Youtube every day, which can easily be done with standard household materials. Afterwards one should try to explain the phenomena, whereby four answer possibilities are given. The next day there is the solution - again via Youtube movies. In the end, the results will be evaluated: individually, for a class group or even for entire schools. The best participants, classes or schools receive prizes. In addition to iPods, books and experimental kits, there will also be a trip to Dallas to NBA basketball games with Dirk Nowitzki.

In addition, SPS is sponsoring special prizes for school teams and for individual pupils who are enrolled in Swiss-based schools.

Everyone can register at the link on the right.
