This four-day summer school challenges very able Year 12 students from across the region. Schools nominate a maximum of 4 students likely to obtain an A/A* at A2 level in both physics and maths. The course adopts a very mathematical approach to teaching physics so that students get a taste of undergraduate-style lectures. They are also shown techniques to solve complex problems beyond AS/A2 specifications.
