Enrichment in Physics

Greenpower Challenge

On this enrichment programme students learn the principles of computer aided design and then put this into practice with the building and racing of an electric car. We race the car as part of the Greenpower series with annual events on the Top Gear track at Dunsfold aerodrome and the Goodwood. 

Industrial Cadets

Supported by an engineer and working with the engineering development trust, students solve a topical problem in a small group. In previous years we have worked with local firm Mott MacDonald and BP.   Students participate in a laboratory day at a local University. The final project is written up as a research report and students receive a Gold award.

Particle Physics with Sussex University

This new project began in lockdown with students from BHASVIC working remotely with scientists from Sussex University to analyse data obtained from experiments at CERN. The students work in a University style with the academics and the project culminates in poster presentations developed jointly by the scientists and students. We hope to continue with this in the coming years.

Hypatia Society

A society for women, those who identify as female and gender-non-conforming students in Physics. A friendly, supportive space- a chance to get to know each other and share experience. We enjoy lunch together, have visiting speakers and attend lectures and local events. Students in this group also play an active ambassador role in the department, supporting visiting students on taster days and working with our feeder schools.
