School Student Physics Award

For second-level schools in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Does your school have an annual prize day? Is there a prize for Physics? Would you like to reward and acknowledge the efforts of a special student in your class? Do you think an award could raise the profile of physics in your school?

If so, the new Institute of Physics in Ireland School Students Award Scheme might just be what you need.

Here's how it works:

  • The school physics teachers nominate up to two students who are at Leaving Certificate or N. Ireland A Level standard. Nominations may include students from last year's Leaving Cert/A Level cohort. Nominations can be submitted to IOPI via a short nomination form
  • IOPI issues a certificate or certificates which the school presents to the nominated student or students
  • IOPI maintains a roll of honour on the IOP Ireland website
  • The school may supplement the award with a trophy or monetary prize
