IOP Physics Resources

The UK’s most comprehensive set of free physics education resources​

IOPSpark has been designed to give teachers, trainees and teacher trainers a one-stop-destination to access the best physics resources and thinking available.  A growing bank of over 2000 free, inter-linked IOP education resources from lesson plans and teacher notes through to topical video content and student worksheets will be available 24/7 and easily searchable by student age, physics topic or type of resource (eg. lesson plan or enrichment activity).

Visit the IOP resources page:


All resources on the site are IOP approved, themed by curriculum areas and have been tried and tested by physics teachers for their peers.  Many of the resources also feature teaching tips and links to carefully selected further reading.


To make the site even more valuable as a time saving way of enhancing lesson planning, resources are linked in ways that help users find related materials and navigate through sequences of activities.
