Speakers for schools

Many of our researchers give talks about their work in schools. These are most suitable for students with an interest in Physics in Years 10-13.

If you are interested in booking a talk please complete the attached booking form (to the right of the page) and return to schools.liaison@physics.ox.ac.uk. One of the outreach team will then discuss dates and make arrangements with speakers.

Talks are on a variety of topics including:

  • Cosmology and dark matter
  • The LHC
  • Climate change
  • Space exploration and telescopes
  • Planetary atmospheres
  • Quantum physics
  • Lasers
  • Relativity
  • Crystals
  • Solar cells

Speakers availability increases at the beginning and end of school terms. Independent schools or schools situated a significant distance from the university may be asked to contribute to the speakers' expenses or partner with a neighbouring school to make the most from the visit.
