Discovery Sessions


During Epiphany term you will conduct the Discovery Experiments. These experiments are less prescribed, being described by a one-page experimental brief, so you will have to think for yourself (more like an experimental physicist). They last for two weeks, and give you chance to determine the appropriate measurements to make.

Topics covered

An example of a past full session script can be found here.

For two of these, you will write up a full report. One will be formative to give you practice for the following summative report.

The laboratory notebook records the you keep during the term will be assessed for your laboratory practice. Your engagement with the weekly preparation for the laboratories and in the laboratories themselves also contributes to this.
