You are invited to a free CPD session (paid for by the Institute of Physics) on Thursday 3rd October 2019, at St George’s College, Weybridge.

The EM Spear is a make-and-take workshop, which will help in students’ understanding of electromagnetic waves.

In this workshop you will make a large, 3D model of an electromagnetic wave, which clearly shows the electric field and magnetic field components (see attached photographs). The workshop is free to attend, and you can take you electromagnetic wave model (the “EM Spear”) away with you.

The EM Spear is great for explaining EM wave propagation, and is particularly useful in explaining polarisation. It also looks great on display on open days!
