Physics hot and cold

Event Capacity: 30

Year Group: 10 and 11 

Subject(s): Physics

Attendee Requirements: None

About: The session will introduce students to the idea of temperature - our experience of extremes of temperature, what temperature means and how is it different to heat. 

We will discuss what happens to materials when they get very hot or very cold, with lots of practical demonstrations using liquid nitrogen. The students will each get an opportunity to solder together a circuit designed to warn if a fridge temperature exceeds a certain level (40°C) and will be able to take the completed circuit away with them to test at home! This Masterclass would be suited for students who are studying or have a keen interest in Physics.

Additional Information: Schools will be limited to 5 places for this class.
