Lower sixth pupils were joined by a group from Carterton Community College for a workshop run by Oxford University's Isaac Physics team, led by Dr Jenny Barnes, Isaac Physics Fellow and lecturer in the University's Physics Department. The 28 pupils were led through a series of increasingly challenging questions, applying their developing calculus skills to problems often encountered in Physics. They were assisted by undergraduate and postgraduate mentors from Oxford, allowing them to really push the limits of their knowledge and abilities. The workshop ended with a very useful session on university admissions with first hand advice from five Oxford Physics students and an experienced admissions tutor.
