Event 20-21 June 2015: Volunteers needed for Physics in the Field at ‘Africa Oye!’
The Institute of Physics is looking for volunteers for “physics busking” at a stand at Africa Oye on 20 and 21st June in Sefton Park, Liverpool.
The Institute will be taking physics to festivals and events around the country this summer, engaging thousands of families and young people with physics busking. Physics busking involves performing physics tricks – small hand held demonstrations which help illustrate an area of physics – and encouraging visitors to try the tricks themselves.
By busking at non-science events we aim to raise awareness of physics among people who wouldn’t normally choose to seek out science. You can find examples of physics tricks here…
All volunteers will receive full instructions and training on how to perform the physics tricks. This will be excellent experience in physics outreach as well as building all important transferable skills. Volunteers will also receive travel expenses and subsistence whilst at the event and a free t-shirt to wear.
Activities will run from noon until 7pm, but also some limited activities until 9.30 pm.
