The Headstart Summer School
The Headstart Summer School. A group of A-Level physics students from England and Scotland enjoyed a 4 day residential Summer School in June via
the Headstart programme. They were introduced to basics of quantum theory, atomic structure, low temperature physics and astrophysics. A visit to Andor Technology showed the link between A-Level/University studies and applying that physics to the real world. Francis Keenan demonstrating how aliens can’t use a knife and fork was another highlight. Thanks to all staff and students who assisted in the event.
