The Experimental Physics Academy focuses on modern physics, specifically mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum dynamics and astrophysics, with an aim to provide hands-on experience and laboratory work within Penn’s vast research facilities. With time to experiment with advanced hardware and settings, students move past memorized equations to gain an understanding of cause and effect, and ultimately an appreciation of physics on a higher level.
If you attend a School District of Philadelphia public or charter high school, you may be eligible to attend a Penn Summer Academy free of charge with a Penn Summer Scholarship.
The Experimental Physics Academy is now closed to non-Philadelphia students.
