Thomas has won one of the 30 places at the prestigious 7th Ogden Physics Symposium which is exclusively for students who have just finished their AS year, are taking physics at A2, and intend to study physics as their first choice university course. He has been nominated by Miss Woods for his outstanding efforts in Physics this year. The object of the Symposium is to allow students to sample physics as it is taught and demonstrated to first year undergraduates at Cambridge and to encourage them to apply to study the subject at degree level, whether at Cambridge or elsewhere.
Jake has won The Ogden Trust s Young Physicist of the Year award; for his outstanding contribution to Physics this year. The University of Liverpool hosted this event, which celebrated the talent of exceptional students studying Physics throughout the city. As a recipient of the Physicist of the Year award, he is entitled to apply for an Ogden Trust Undergraduate Science Scholarship, worth 1,500 per annum, should he choose to study a Physics degree at a leading British university. Guests were treated to a lecture by Dr Barry King, University of Liverpool who works with CERN on finding sub atomic particles.
The annual Physics Revision evening was held at Hillside High School this year back in May. The evening started with a demonstration from University of Liverpool Physics undergraduates making liquid nitrogen ice cream for everyone. Jake, Thomas, Anish, Jack, Rebecca and Abigail devised and delivered two workshops on key concepts in Physics; to year 11 students from around the city. They received excellent feedback from teachers and students alike. It was a long 3 hours for the 6th form students after a long days study in school. Despite this they kept their spirits high and were a credit to the school in passing on their knowledge with enthusiasm.
