The 15th Hintze Lecture will be delivered by Professor Brian Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University and 2011 Noble Prize Winner in Physics.

Title: State of the Universe
Abstract: Our Universe was created in 'The Big Bang' and has been expanding ever since. Professor Schmidt will describe the vital statistics of the Universe, including its size, weight, shape, age, and composition. Professor Schmidt will also try to make sense of the Universe's past, present, and future – and describe what we know, and what we do not yet know, about the Cosmos

Aims

8 Jul 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Stories of science are filled with eureka moments—from Archimedes’ bath to Newton’s apple—but the scientific method or procedure of discovery also includes false starts and mistakes that are essential to longer-term success. The scientific method is characterised by the systematic observation, measurement and experiment as well as the formulation, testing and modification of hypotheses – for which critical analysis and thinking form a central part of the process.

21 Jun 2017 - 9:30am to 1:00pm

The Ogden Trust Oxford Partnership have teamed up with Isaac Physics and the University of Oxford Physics Department to offer an exciting end of term experience which aims to stretch and challenge Year 12 Physics students. We aim to help students improve their problem solving skills within a scientific context, a key requirement for students who wish to study STEM subjects at university.
