Isaac Physics Student Workshop – Calculus in Physics 2

This free workshop aims to make explicit the mathematical nature of physics, as well as developing each student’s confidence and problem solving skills. Students will tackle a range of problems that require the application of calculus, demonstrating the importance of mathematics within physics, and giving students a taster of the style of problems they will meet in physics courses at university.

Audience

A2 students who are aiming to achieve A* to B grades in both physics and maths at A level.

Registration

For more details and to book, please see the Isaac Physics website.

 

(This workshop isn’t run by NUSTEM, but we’re delighted to host and help promote it.)

Imagining the Sun at Lit & Phil

On the 17th of January 2018 the Lit & Phil are hosting a schools workshop based around the Imagining the Sun project: a collaboration of a poet, a sound artist and a visual artist with Northumbria University’s solar physics research group, supported by outreach specialists.

During this event students will learn about the Sun from one of Northumbria University’s solar physicists, exploring its awesome scale and the range of light it produces. The science will  then be followed by the poetry. Award-winning poet Katrina Porteous will read some of her work and encourage participants to express their new-found knowledge through poetry.

This event is exclusively for school groups, and targeted at year 9/10 students keen in science and english. Schools groups are limited to 10 students each.
