This event for more than 30 pupils from around the country who scored highly in the British Physics Olympiad offered an exciting opportunity for them to meet like-minded people and to:
their problem solving skills in physics
interesting physics practicals
more about studying physics at University
possible career options in physics
more about cutting edge research in physics.
On arrival on 6 July, the pupils enjoyed a tour of the College followed by a problem-solving session, before dinner in Hall. After dinner was a talk on 'Thinking like an engineer'.
The students stayed overnight in College, and the following day attended lectures, practicals and information sessions in the Physics Department, rounded off with a session on admissions and a mock interview, with Professor Tony Weidberg of St John's.
