Physics at Work
Year 10 visited the Cavendish Laboratory to the Physics at Work Exhibition last week. The pupils met people involved in cutting edge research and development and gained a sense of where an education in science could take them. There was a total of 26 different presentations ranging from research Physics to the application of science in high-tech industry and engineering, and each group of pupils saw a selection of six of these. Highlights included explosions from the Atomic Weapons Establishment, to forensic science in the military to levitating supermagnets. This was a very interesting and thought-provoking day for all!
