The Physics Research in School Environments (PRiSE) programme is a great way for students to engage with exciting research projects in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London over a sustained period of time. We run these projects over the first two terms of the academic year. Across all projects we give an introductory talk and workshop and provide all the resources students need to get going. GCSE and A-Level students then spend no more than a few hours a week working on the project, supported by Queen Mary physicists throughout, culminating in their presenting their findings at our student conference Cosmic Con before Easter. Further information is available here.
Connect Physics is a set of three workshops primarily for Key Stage 3 science students (though its content and messages are appropriate for older groups up to even adults). They encourage students to think of the bigger picture by connecting different ideas, such as familiar topics from science, the latest physics research or their everyday lives, through physics, find out about careers that are possible through studying physics and get a chance to develop their skills using the scientific method and peer-review process through an open-ended problem with no presented final solution. Further information is available here.
As well as activities with us to be arranged by teachers, we have a number of opportunities which students can apply for individually. Find out more here.
Queen Mary supports a broad range of activities aimed at maximising the opportunities available to potential students. These include more general opportunities, resources, and information, as well as subject-specific opportunities.
