About the event

This exciting event (organised by Physics Outreach) is aimed at Years 10, 11, and 12 students who are already studying, or are considering studying A Level physics. Not only will attendees be exposed to the frontiers of Physics research, they will also leave with a ‘yes you can’ attitude when it comes Physics research. See the biographies of the speaker line up on below.

Topics covered in the talks will include cutting edge research on Dark Matter, the Cassini Mission and Global Warming.
