School of Physics and Astronomy - Outreach and Schools Liaison

Welcome to our Schools Liaison web pages

Teacher wiith studentsWe very much value our contacts with teachers and students in schools and colleges and are continually developing links, activities and resources which we hope will enrich the school curriculum and support Physics Education.

We organise activities for students and teachers visiting the University and also take activities out into schools and colleges. At a variety of levels, we aim to give  insights into current research, explain degree and career options and generally enthuse the next generation to study more Physics!

To get an idea of the variety of events, please click on our calendar for 2015-16 (PDF), or read more detail about activities and resources by clicking on the links below.

If you would like more information or would like to chat about involving you or your students in any events, please don't hesitate to contact Lynne Long or Maria Pavlidou, our Schools Liaison Officer - we look forward to making links with you and your school or college!
