Stowmarket Physicists Visit Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
On Friday 15th November fifteen lucky A level Physics students visited the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Harwell, Oxfordshire, as part of the Education Access Day which aims to provide an opportunity for teachers and students to visit Oxfordshire's centre for Big Science, meet some of the scientists and engineers who work there and have a tour of the site's experiments.
The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is a large research facility, providing resources for particle physics, space science, materials and photon science and houses the UK’s equivalent of the Large Hadron Collider.
Students were able to visit the neutron/muon collider ISIS and the Central Laser Facility, home to one of the world's leading laser facilities, as well as hearing a lecture about the Large Hadron Collider and seeing a demonstration of liquid nitrogen.
Head of Physics Mark Wilson said, “The visit was able to show our future physicists and engineers the kind of facility they could be working at in and the kind of research that is happening at the cutting edge of science in the UK. The students had a great time there and were amazed at the facilities.”
