Virtual outreach session

Although the social distancing rules brought into combat COVID-19
make the business of the University difficult. It is still possible
to continue with some activities — using of course technology.

For example, Dr. Martin Lavelle just gave a school outreach talk
on dimensional analysis to a local school’s student physics society
via a video conference system. Martin found it
odd not to be able see faces (they tell you if people are following and
interested) and to get questions via chat. However, it possible
to run the session by sharing slides and using a whiteboard with a pen
Overall it was fun.
