A-Level study days

Manchester student with Phylomedusine treefrogI have just heard news from Louise Sutherland, our super enthusiastic Curator of Learning (Secondary and Post-16), that due to the massive amount of interest in our newest A-Level offering, ‘Frogs and Physics’, it is to be extended. The sessions, developed in collaboration with Louise and also Dr Mark Dickinson, are now fully booked. However, the decision means many other schools interested in booking the free sessions will a get a great further opportunity.  

The unique session, based in the Museum and the Photon Science Institute at Manchester, allows students to get to grips with the latest hi-tech equipment and to understand how this is helping us investigate the optical and structural properties of amphibian skin:   http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7464437.stm
