University Day at the Open University

Audience:KS2; KS3
Author:Liz Parvin (Open University) and Helen Pollard (The Ogden Trust)
Reference number:032

This visit aimed to give students some idea of what goes on in research labs, relate the physics in our labs to physics they know, show that the people who do physics are ‘real people’ and, by doing all of these things, encourage the students to think of doing science as a career themselves.
