Year 12 School Visits
Our Year 12 school visits are aimed at providing students with an experience that will enthuse them into considering taking physics at university.
The day usually comprises an introductory talk, a tour of the research facilities and a session in the first year lab. Experiments are chosen to complement the work done at AS level, but also to prepare them for Y13. A treatment of uncertainties is emphasised during the experiments which are demonstrated by physics postgraduate students.
