School Day

The IAPS School Day (ISD) is the main IAPS outreach activity happening on and around November 10. Every year since 2015, physics students, members of IAPS, visit schools and demonstrate several physics experiments under the same topic. It is the IAPS way of celebrating the World Science Day for Peace and Development, also on November 10.

Mark your calendars.
