This week we had a year 10 student visiting us from a local school for some work experience. The student learned a bit about the basics of quantum physics as well, a short introduction to some mathematical ideas, such as complex numbers. The student also had short interviews with staff members about their research, for example:
- Problems with the Higgs boson.
- Laser Physics
- The importance of mathematics for physics
- Topology and the different types of infinities.
