Isaac Physics: virtual student boot camp

22 July 2020

In August, Isaac Physics is running a free virtual summer bootcamp to help get UK Year 12 physics students up to speed before starting Year 13.

The free online sessions will be spread over a week, to reduce time online. They will provide an intense workout so students can practise the physics concepts that they will need to get good grades in their A-level exams and will help them catch up following the school closures.

The bootcamp will comprise mini-lectures and workshops, with experienced physics teachers and members of the Isaac Physics team on hand throughout to provide small group support. Students will work with the Mastering Physics books (with sessions led by the authors) and extend beyond these questions to develop confidence in core topics.

The bootcamp will include pre-recorded material, online tasks and live Zoom tutorials, and will take place every morning from Monday 24 – Friday 28 August.

“With the disruption to this year's teaching, the bootcamp is a great opportunity for A-level physics students to hone their mathematical problem solving skills and make sure they are ready for Year 13,” says Henry Hammond, Ogden Secondary Physics Lead. “These online sessions will provide students with additional support and learning to better prepare for the next academic year and will be ideal for students who are keen to improve their grades and are willing to work hard.

“The Ogden Trust has been a long-standing supporter of Isaac Physics. Teachers and students continue to engage with the platform which provides opportunities for students to practise challenging physics problems in a supported online environment,” concludes Henry.

The bootcamp is aimed at students who will be starting Y13 in September 2020, studying maths and physics in a state-maintained school/college in the UK and priority will be given to students who meet the widening participation criteria of Isaac Physics.
