Activities Related to Physics

img:talnet_1.jpg I am a leader of two online physics courses in the extracurricular educational project called Talnet that enables high school students to learn beyond the prescribed curriculum. My first course is focused on optics and optical response of materials and I offer topics (study materials and related tasks) that present the beauties of modern physics.

My second course is focused on solving tasks from the International Young Physicists' Tournament. I am the leader of this course and, together with my co-workers, we help our students deal with a new set of seventeen highly challenging tasks every year.

As part of this project for approximately thirty high school students from across the Europe, I was in charge of a 20 000-USD budget. Together with my colleagues from Talnet, we focused on natural sciences and humanities and their understanding in different countries. The project was of a great success and was repeated two years later.

Serving on a committee of Talnet courses. Several times, I was evaluating scientific works of high school students or making decisions about small grants in Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Humanities.

SPIE and OSA Charles University Student Chapter

Official website:

img:spie_1.jpg I have been a member of the Chapter since an academic year 2013/2014. I participate in the Demonstrations of Physics on Schools and in my position as an officer of the Chapter, I focus especially on organising activities for members and I am the administrator of the official website.

With my friends and colleagues, I have performed numerous physics workshops for elementary and high school students for the past three years. Each year, we visit ten or more schools and typically address about 120 students per visit. During these workshops, I usually lead a session connected to lasers, light emitting diodes, or colors. We especially try to bring the program to poorer regions of the Czech Republic, where the schools do not have many opportunities for similar programs.

Project Vydra

Official website:

In 2016 I helped to organize the first year of physics seminars called Vydra for about twenty talented high school students. The program was focused on presenting real scientific research (methods, approaches to open problems) to the attendees who will probably study physics at Universities but who had known only high school physics. The project was organized under the auspices of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists and the results (posters and photos) can be found at the official website. The project is going to continue in next years.
