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.
The next workshops will take place on Thursday, 21st and Friday, 22nd January 2016. The workshops are designed for 16 - 18 year-olds / sixth formers.
Please contact Martisse Foster via firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
Each year members of the Centre for Quantum Photonics hold a week long summer school based on the quantum phenomena and the power of light. Aimed at students aged 16+ this free event includes lectures and demonstrations from our researchers on a variety of different topics. This year's event will run from the 25th - 29th July 2016.
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.
Last year's Work Experience Week ran from Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July 2015. For further information on work experience please contact email@example.com.
