Event: Physics Talks for Your School

The University of Sheffield offers a range of engaging interactive talks for school students of all ages, free of charge.

Due to social distancing measures in place for managing the spread of COVID-19, many of these talks can be delivered remotely.  Provisional bookings can also be made to visit your school from January 2021.

Talks for schools

Academics from the University of Sheffield can deliver interactive talks in your school. They cover many fascinating topics including:

  • Exploring the Universe (KS2, KS4 and KS5)
  • Particle physics and CERN (KS4 and 5)
  • Stars (KS4 and 5)
  • Lasers (KS4 and 5)
  • Nanotechnology (KS4 and 5)
  • Dark Matter (KS4 and 5)
  • Light (KS2, 3, 4 and 5)
  • Quantum Computers (KS5)
  • Sound (KS2)

Please note they can only travel to local schools in South Yorkshire, and during periods of high demand, they will give priority to schools in areas of low progression to university.

If you are interested in arranging a talk, please complete the booking enquiry form via the register link and the University will be in touch.
