We can arrange workshops in our undergraduate teaching labs, from lighter activities to more focused sessions designed to supplement students’ practical abilities and reinforce data analysis and error estimation techniques. All activities are thoroughly assessed for risks and are supervised.
Workshops generally begin with a short introductory talk about the science and applications of the techniques, then the students work in pairs to complete the experiments.
The workshops we currently offer are:
If you would like to enquire further or discuss the possibility of a session specifically tailored to supplement theoretical knowledge from school classes, please contact Dr Gemma Winter at email@example.com
The next workshops will take place in April 2015, dates to be confirmed soon. The workshops are designed for 16 - 18 year-olds / (upper) sixth formers.
Please contact Martisse Foster via firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
A week of work experience is organised every year in which students are able to spend time with various research groups, work in the teaching labs and attend talks and demonstrations within the school.
This year's Work Experience Week ran from Monday 30th June to Friday 4th July 2014. For further information on work experience please contact Krissy Stothard.
Read what this year's work experience students have to say in the Work Experience Report 2014 (PDF).
A number of our academics give talks and demonstrations at schools and colleges.
HiSparc is a very successful outreach programme which invites schools to participate in real research into cosmic rays.
