Do Try This at Home
We want to make it easy for parents and carers to get their children excited about physics. That's why we've launched Do Try This at Home, a series of fun science experiments for kids, with short demonstration videos and simple, step-by-step instructions.
As we adapt to new ways of living, working and teaching at home, we’re here to help.
We're the Institute of Physics, the professional body and learned society for physics in the UK and Ireland. We work with schools to develop the teaching of physics – and now we want to use our expertise to help parents and carers inspire and educate their children at home.
Our expert science communicators, based around the UK and Ireland, are filming short demonstration videos in their kitchens and living rooms, specifically to help parents and carers. They're using basic household materials to demonstrate physics, with step-by-step instructions and simple explanations of the science behind it all, published right here.
We want to make it easy to get your children excited about learning – without having to leave your home. We release new activities regularly, so keep checking back here for more.
