Physics Summer School
22nd – 26th July (limited availability) and repeated 10th – 14th August 2013 (places available) • 5 days • University of London Union • Ages 15-18*
*This event is suitable for students who have completed AS Level Maths, or reached a similar standard in other qualification structures.
This five day Summer School will take students on a tour through the exciting world of further physics study. The goals are threefold. First, to introduce students to a variety of areas of physics which they may not have encountered before; second, to give students a taste of what the study of physics is like at university; finally, the course seeks to make students think more deeply about physics as a discipline. As well as exploring theoretical material we will be looking at ongoing experiments, including those at the Large Hadron Collider.
In each of the sessions across the course, students will receive expert instruction from our tutors, engage with other students to solve complex equations and problems and will participate in group discussion on why physics matters. Finally students will experience an undergraduate approach to teaching and learning, helping them to make informed decisions about continuing in the study of physics, as well as bridging the educational gap between secondary school and university.
Topics for 2013:
Classical Mechanics * Quantum Mechanics * Particle Physics * Astrophysics * Special Relativity * General Relativity * Philosophy of Quantum Mechanics (Possible Worlds)
