9th November: Solar and Medical Physics

This morning we’ve been working with Y6 and Y4/5 at Ivy Road Primary.

Y6 were exploring the invisible world of light and learning about the work that Solar Physicists do. The picture on the left is Y6 shown in infrared – you can see the heat from their bodies! We also looked at videos of the sun.

Y5 found out about Medical Physics and explored some of the technologies that help healthcare professionals diagnose illnesses. We looked at x-rays, found out about MRI scans and ultrasound, and use infrared radiation to detect our pulse rates. Want to find out more – check out our medical physics page.

NUSTEM staff have had a busy week at Ivy Road, and are looking forward to coming back soon!
