Quantum physics fun for students' trip
PUBLISHED: 19:00 17 October 2011
YEAR 12 students from Kings of Wessex Academy visited Cardiff University last week to learn about the latest scientific advancements.
They had a talk about diamonds followed by a lecture on the life and death of stars.
A sixth form boy who sounded like a girl –thanks to a voice-modifying microphone – then gave a talk about sound and noise.
They even touched on quantum physics and the sounds of space.
Throughout it all, there was a paper aeroplane-throwing contest to learn about aerodynamics, with the chance to win a chocolate bar for a direct hit on the speaker.
