EPQ topic help Physics/Maybe philosophy too watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey! I'm doing the EPQ with my school and was wondering if anyone could help me think some some ideas for the project. I was planning on doing an ethics based one but I'm soooort of deciding against it since the stuff I was looking at doing has been done quite a bit before more the professionals so I run a high risk of plagiarizing/generally repeating stuff said/discussed a lot before.

    I would really like to do a physics one, specifically something to do with quantum physics or any theoretical physics field that was less to do with data analysis (but presenting some kind of data analysis/experimentation skills, I have heard, is good so I would be cool to do a bit of that stuff). I would also be interested in discussing the implications of the theory (or whatever topic) and how it applied to philosophy (which is why I've included it in the title).

    ANY IDEAS HELP <3 Thanks for reading.

    P.S. A philosophy based on WOULD be cool if it had a physics dimension where I could explain and use theories in physics as empirical evidence for/against a certain point of view. Or one where I could talk about the implications of some kind of physics theory. Thanks again.

    You seem to have lots of different ideas but really need to narrow them down. Sit yourself down and write down all your ideas. Then have a brief look at what's been done in all your fields of interest and work out if you can add anything by doing your EPQ in those areas. This will help to narrow down and focus your ideas and come up with a topic to work on.
