The Junior Physics Odyssey (JPhO) is a four-day (non-residential) program held at UQ St Lucia campus for Year 10 students with an interest in physics, science and mathematics.

School pupils Kyle Werrett
and Matthew Hobson
put their heads together.

The program aims to develop your problem-solving skills as well as an appreciation and understanding of physics.

By presenting physics in a format that complements Senior Physics, JPhO will:

  • introduce you to the formal study of physics through lectures and tutorials
  • give you hands-on experience of physics through experiments and workshops
  • provide you with spaces in which to explore ideas in modern physics at forums and tours of research labs.
