During the first half of Michaelmas term, you will conduct a set of experiments designed to familiarise you with the absolute basics of experimental physics: good laboratory practice and record keeping, basic data analysis, and commonly used equipment. The second half of the term consists of three further experiments to continue developing skills, as well as an Enterprise Seminar. The tiles below are examples of past experiments completed by students in previous years.
Throughout the term, you will receive continuous feedback on all aspects of your work as you develop as scientists, including experimentation, data analysis, and record-keeping.
