Advent Calendar

We have created an online Advent Calendar for 2022, featuring contributions from Physics students from over twenty countries across five continents. 

We are posting the Advent Calendar on our Instagram (@j.iaps) each day in December and you can find the full posts on this website too.

Learn about festive traditions across the globe, create Physics-themed Christmas tree decorations and listen to music played by our own international music group of Physics students. With puzzles, and recipes to try, there is something for everyone.

jIAPS also organises a monthly photography competition. During December, the theme will be photos of the Festive Season. We would love to see your photos – just email us or tag us on social media. You don’t have to be a current physics student to enter. If you would like to learn more about jIAPS, please email us at
