The event is centred around subject-based activities including:
- For Physics teachers: hands-on activities including the ‘Photonics Explorer Kit’, and a ‘Music Mixer’ circuit board which teaches core electronics concepts for A-level Physics students (classroom kits and supporting materials will be provided free-of-charge to attendees). There will also be an ‘Isaac Physics’ problem-solving session.
- For Computer Science teachers: a Raspberry Pi-based classroom activity, plus a hardware-based experiment teaching digital logic (supporting materials will be provided free-of-charge to attendees of the workshop).
The programme will also include:
- Opportunities to network and share best practice.
- A keynote lecture on applications of STEM in a University research environment
- An interactive session on improving diversity in STEM
- A rare discussion on University admissions “from our point of view”
- Tours of our world-class research facilities, including our £100M inter-disciplinary nanofabrication centre
The workshop is free-of-charge including meals, and one night of accommodation at our Glen Eyre halls complex is provided for residential attendees.
A deposit is required on booking, which will be refunded shortly after your attendance at the event.
Places are very limited, with a maximum of two per institution. Priority will go to those who did not attend the 2016 workshop.
This exciting and interactive event is jointly hosted by the Department of Electronics and Computer Science and Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Southampton.
This event is jointly supported by the IET through the Engineering Education Grant Scheme, the EPSRC Future Manufacturing Photonics Hub, the Ogden Trust, and the University of Southampton Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering.
Please note that on-campus parking is very limited (except for blue badge holders). Parking is likely to be provided at a nearby University site (10-15 minute walk, or a short bus journey).
