The day will begin with a talk by Distinguished Professor George Picket (FRS) about his quest to reaching the lowest temperature for bulk matter (a few micro Kelvin). Professor Pickett designed this experiment which has taken two years to build. It is expected that the participants will be not be familiar with the techniques used for Ultra Low Temperature experiments and informal discussion will be encouraged throughout the day to enable understanding. The pitch will be to A level Physics standard, but all teachers are welcome.
During the day there will be demonstrations of superconductivity with discussions explaining this activity, a tour of the Low temperature labs, and the Physics of measuring temperature using a fundamental scale.
Workshops will include activities which can be used to teach the Thermal Physics component in A level Physics.
