We aim to enthuse students to continue studying physics and to develop their A-Level physics. We emphasise the "How Science Works" section of the physics A-Level specification during these events. For instance, we explain how the research projects fit into the wider global scientific community. We also host one of the STFC National Particle Physics Masterclasses. Our Masterclasses are delivered by researchers and postgraduate students.
How to attend a masterclass
A maximum of 16 students can attend each Masterclass. Individual students must apply, and as places are limited, please apply early. All you have to do is complete our booking form stating the Masterclass you are interested in attending.
We will contact you and if there are places available. We will then send you a letter which includes a consent form for your parent or guardian to complete.
If you live in Cumbria there are travel allowances available. We have a grant from the Ogden Trust to pay for your train fares to these events. We shall send you the tickets once your place is confirmed and we have your completed consent form.
