We believe the best way to support learning is to turn theory into practice with fun experiments. That's why we offer school classes the opportunity to come to our undergraduate teaching labs in Bristol to take part in one of our workshops and practice their practical skills.
Waves workshop module
During this workshop, pupils will split into pairs or small groups and carry out several experiments. This session can be tailored for pupils from pre-GCSE through to A-level, and experiments available include measuring the speed of light, measuring the speed of sound, investigating Chladni plates and standing waves on strings, using diffraction gratings to measure the wavelength of a laser and using electron diffraction to calculate Planck's constant.
