Reece Summer School 2016
Ten students. Three weeks. All engineering.
For the second year, Think Physics and the Reece Foundation will welcome ten female AS-level physics or first year Level 3 Engineering students, for an intensive summer school programme.
Across three weeks, students will work with Northumbria University researchers and engineering industry experts on a range of projects, culminating in a final presentation of their work to the wider community, including family and friends. There’ll be site visits, workshops, talks and individual and group research. The school is designed to:
The Summer School is based at our Think Lab on the city centre Northumbria University campus. There’ll be several visits off-site to engineering firms and other relevant places.
Starting on 18th July, the School will run weekdays to the 5th August. It’s important that applicants can plan to attend all days of the School.
A bursary of £100 per week per student is available, with a small discretionary fund to support those with particularly onerous travel or other costs.
We’ve capacity for about ten students on the course, and we expect places to be highly sought-after. Places will be allocated to individuals who make the most compelling case for the benefit they think they’ll see from participating, with priority given to students from Think Physics’ partner schools.

Applications for the Reece Engineering Summer School 2016 are through web submission only, though if you have accessibility requirements please contact us with your needs and we’ll work to accommodate you.
We’re holding applications from our partner schools open for an extra week, until Friday 4th March 2016!
We’ll make decisions as quickly as we can, but if we’re swamped with applications (and we hope we will be!) it may be May before you hear if you’ve been successful.
The form is simpler than it looks, but you may wish to read it through before filling it in: for security reasons we don’t allow you to save the form and come back to it later. Since printing this page produces a hideous mess, we’ve prepared a handy PDF of the form. It’s still ugly, but it is legible!
