Places available: 75
Age group: Year 12, Year 13, A Level, BTEC
This virtual taster session is suitable for students studying A Level Physics and Mathematics with a predicted grade B in both subjects, and an interest in studying Physics at University. Join us for this interactive session and get a flavour of what life as a physics student is like. Take part in an interactive workshop exploring habitable zones - the region around stars where the temperature allows liquid water to exist. After a quick break, Prof Simon Goodwin will then explore how physicists are just a few years away from looking for life on other planets in a mini-lecture. Then to finish off the session, there will be a chance for you to find out more about being a physics student at the University of Sheffield, as you take part in a Q&A. You will have the chance to talk to some of our current undergraduate students, a member of our admissions team, and a careers expert, who will all be on hand to answer any queries you might have about studying physics at university.
