This year, the Department of Physics are inviting you to design a poster all about magnetism!

You can create a poster for one of two categories:

  • A research style poster, explaining an experiment that you have carried out yourself that explores magnetism

This competition is open to any students in Year 3 through to Year 13 and will be judged in age categories based on Key Stage.
