Get Started with Science: Introduction to Astrophysics
16:15 - 17:15
If you are interested in Astrophysics and science of space, this session is for you! You will find out about the transferable skills this subject will help you to develop and how can be applied to a wide range of careers in science.
In the session, lecturers will outline three main parts of the A-Level option (in line with the AQA specification) including observations, classification of stars and cosmology. As well as appealing to those who are keen to study Physics at college, it may be of interest to any young people with a general interest in what is out there!
There will be some practical work with telescopes and looking at some good mobile apps that make star gazing much easier.
The event is suitable for young people and their parents.
