About Us

University of Manchester Physics Outreach (UMPO) is a student organised science communication project which aims to engage the general public in various outreach activities. This could be visiting schools to deliver workshops about the different areas of physics, or going out into public spaces with our table top demonstration, explaining physics concepts to the general public and spreading the word of science!
