As the Koç School Physics Department, our main objective is to provide the educational environment required to bring up individuals who can understand the universe they live in and its laws, question these, apply scientific research methods correctly, improve the applied methods via evaluation, respect ethical values, are able to keep up with the latest global developments and design the future based on what they have learned.

Our main goal in physics education is to raise individuals who can evaluate what is happening around them with a scientific point of view. In this sense, we know that it is important for our school and our country to extend our students’ perception of physics beyond physical concepts, rules, and problem-solving skills. It all starts with them being able to see science as a channel of communication in the solution of problems and in their relation to their environment. As teachers whose principle is to interpret daily life, establish links and know that there is so much more to learn, our fundamental objective extracted from the time spent with our students is the ability to teach that physics is with us every step of the way in our lives.

It is our purpose to bring up individuals who believe in the importance of science and inquisitive spirit, are open to trying new methods, able to understand and internalize different approaches, and eager to be the producer of the current technology rather than being just the consumer.

In line with these objectives, we are supporting our students in extracurricular activities that will contribute to their improvement and are acting as advisors to their projects. As the physics department, we also support our students in national and international competitions and activities. We consult them on engineering contests, science magazines, robotics competitions, and space technologies.

Physics lessons at Koç School are taught at the 9th and 10th-grade levels in accordance with the Ministry of National Education (MEB) curriculum, enriched with experiments and research studies, and the language of instruction is English.

Our students, who choose the MEB program in the 11th and 12th grades, progress in the program in Turkish, prepared according to the curriculum of the Ministry of National Education (MEB), with the studies carried out in line with their goals, experiments, test solutions, and trial exams.

The detailed contents of the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades Physics course MEB curriculum can be accessed from here.

 Grades 11 and 12 IB Physics is offered at advanced and standard levels. In line with the objectives of the IB program and Koç School, the program is implemented by targeting the analytical and scientific thinking skills of our students through interactive studies and experiments on qualitative and quantitative problems.
