Superconductors and the latest news from the LHC

On activities day this year 25 sixth and seventh form students headed to the Royal Institution in London to listen to two lectures.

The lectures took place in the Faraday Lecture Theatre; you may recognise this as this is where the annual Christmas Lectures take place.

After the lecture we gathered for the obligatory team shot; in a previous photo Jonty decided that Michael Faraday would look better with bunny ears.

It was great to take a large group to the Ri where their main goal is to encourage public engagement with science. We listened to two great lectures and then a few students even made it to the UCL lecture later that evening.

A big thank you to Rosie and James who wrote the following pieces about the trip.
