About this day
A limitless world awaits…
Five sessions of phenomenal physics will be brought to you by the brightest lights in the field in 2018. Join us for a day full of inspiration, challenge and engagement. A special session on examination success will provide students with the tools to excel.
Programme & speakers
The future ain’t what it used to be Mark Lewney, Mathematician and physicist
What will the Future be like, and why aren’t astrologers rich? Predicting the future has changed dramatically over the centuries, and modern Quantum Physics and Chaos Theory now tell us that very basic systems cannot be predicted, even in principle.
About Mark Lewney
Dr Mark Lewney, the Rock Doctor, winner of the first ever FameLab competition and guitar physicist blows your ears with rock guitar and blows your mind with Superstring Theory.
Bubble engineering to treat diseases Eleanor Stride, Oxford University
Join Eleanor to discover her work engineering tiny bubbles that can be injected into the blood stream and “popped” using ultrasound, releasing drugs in a highly targeted fashion to treat diseases such as cancer and stroke.
About Eleanor Stride
Eleanor leads a research team in the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering on Drug Delivery.
Discovering the mysteries of the Universe Kate Shaw, University of Sussex
What is the Universe fundamentally made out of? What is the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy? These are some of the questions physicists are attempting to answer in the journey to understand our Universe!
About Kate Shaw
Kate is an experimental particle physicist at the University of Sussex, working on the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and to promote physics in less developed countries.
Our dynamic Sun Helen Mason, University of Cambridge
Helen will discuss what we have learnt about our dynamic Sun from several solar space observatories, looking at what we know about sunspots, solar active regions and flares (huge explosions), and how the Sun affects the Earth’s environment (space weather).
About Helen Mason
Dr Helen Mason is solar scientist at the University of Cambridge. Her field of research is solar physics, in particular the ultraviolet and X-ray spectrum of the Sun.
