Why GradePod partnered with the Institute of Physics

No young person should feel locked out of physics yet many are put off from studying it. There are no limits to what can be achieved with physics. Both GradePod and the Institute of Physics share the mission of improving diversity and accessibility of physics to secondary school students. We want to build a thriving physics community and play our part in solving the STEM skills shortage by ensuring that people, no matter their background or where they live, have access to world-class physics education and training.
