PiA – Physics in Advent

Physics in Advent is a special advent physical calendar, in which 24 simple and yet ingenious experiments and physics puzzles invite to be tried out at home with your family and friends or just for yourself. You can answer the outcome of every experiment on the web page throughout the day before seeing the solution video the next day. The videos will be in German, with optional subtitles in English.

The Swiss Physical Society is sponsoring special prices for individual pupils and for whole school classes from Swiss schools, classes 5 to 10, which will be drawn among the best performing participants.

"PiA - Physics in Advent" is free, and young and old can participate; if you are a 5th to 10th grader, you may even win a prize.
