Inaugural Ogden Trust Physics Residential
The Ogden Trust is funding its first ever Physics Residential at Lancaster University for 25 A-level students from schools in Cumbria from December 18 to 20.
The enrichment programme for promising sixth-formers will give them the opportunity to go on a lab tour for the Quantum Dot project, conduct experiments in the teaching laboratories, meet graphene researchers and hear about the latest news from CERN. They will also attend the SciTech Conference lecture "What's the Use of Space Science?: Space Science in a Modern Society" by Professor David Southwood, formerly of the European Space Agency.
The Residential is being organised by Phil Furneaux, the School Outreach Officer in the Department of Physics and is designed to give students a taste of the campus experience, improve their understanding of physics concepts beyond their own studies and inspire the next generation of physicists.
