Physics Big Quiz 2016

The School of Physics and Astronomy ran its Annual Physics Big Quiz with the University’s Outreach team. 92 year 9 students from a huge variety of schools spent the day in the great hall in putting their Physics knowledge to the test. The quiz masters, Prof David Evans, Dr Garry Tungate, Dr Robert Smith and Dr. Maria Pavlidou lead the pupils through rounds on a variety of physics topics throughout the day. The visitors also listened to a talk from Prof Martin Freer during the lunch break. After some stiff competition the team from Hansdworth Grammar came out victorious to win the coveted 1st place prize. The big quizzes provide a fun filled day for local students to learn more about the university and the subjects we teach in the impressive setting of the beautiful great hall. Thanks to all involved to make these days successful.
