Summer physics

  1. Mar 17, 2012 #1
    Hi, i am currently a 9th grade student going to grade 10. I am extremely interested in physics and would really like to extend my knowledge beyond what I currently know. Throughout the summer I was thinking of doing something physics related, but im not sure what I could do. I was thinking of maybe emailing a professor at a local university and asking if i could assist in the lab? I'm not really sure. In short, I am looking for some extracurricular activities relating to physics to do over the summer. I live in Singapore, if that helps.

    What physics courses have you taken? What math have you taken?

    i have self studied a lot of more advanced physics, and calculus

    That doesn't really answer his question at all frankly and calculus is a large field. Can you be much more specific?

    It might be pretty difficult to find someone to take you on,
    I had a summer scholarship at my uni which just ended a few weeks ago and it required at least 3rd year undergraduate knowledge, and 60% of the time I was reading and learning about new things to progress with work.

    You could always continue studying yourself, learn how to code, that's something I wish I did in my free time when I was your age
