Physics@Home is a competition that encourages physics students in Ireland to think about physics in everyday life. Using only materials and equipment that can be found at home, teams of 3-4 school pupils have to create a presentation that demonstrates an application or principle of physics. There are two strands in the competition, one for teams in years 10 or 11 and one for years 12 or 13. The competition is held on one day in March at Queen's University Belfast Department of Physics and Astronomy, during which the presentations are given to a panel of judges, with valuable prizes going to the winners. The event is sponsored by the Institute of Physics in Ireland and the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
