Physics at King’s Seniors
· King’s runs an annual trip to the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Bosworth (who worked there himself as a graduate student) has travelled there with a total of over 400 A Level Physics student.
· The Physics preparation room contains nearly 1,000 different items of apparatus for experiments and demonstrations and nearly 10,000 pieces in total when full class sets are added up.
· Developing a spirit of inquiry, curiosity and understanding through both experimental work and problem solving is at the heart of what we do in Physics.
· In fact, Physicists are best described as problem solvers. You will develop high level mathematical, logical, critical and practical skills which transfer readily to other academic disciplines, university degrees and jobs.
· To tackle some of the most important challenges facing the world today, we require the skills you will develop studying Physics: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonisation of transport, driverless cars, mathematical modelling of virus transmission to name but a few.
