2019 NZIP Conference

15-17 April


Teachers are invited to the University of Canterbury for the 19th Conference of the New Zealand Institute of Physics, incorporating Physikos, the New Zealand Physics Teachers Conference.

The venue is the brand new Ernest Rutherford building in the Regional Science and Innovation Centre, the centrepiece of transformation of the UC campus in the post-earthquake era.


As part of Physikos, local and international educators will share their experiences and teaching strategies. Physikos is the major professional development opportunity for New Zealand physics educators. 


The conference will be followed by a professional development workshop for teachers on 18 April. There is an exciting line-up of speakers on cutting edge physics pedagogy and research.

Climate physics, space physics, astrophysics, nanotechnology, quantum optics, medical imaging technology are just some of the topics that will be covered.


There will be two public lectures, a welcome reception, and a conference dinner included in the registration fee.
