This lecture series is aimed primarily at those in years 12 and 13 and exists to enthuse, stimulate and challenge students and their teachers across the whole broad spectrum of physics-related topics. These lectures are co-ordinated by a team of volunteers who are always interested in receiving suggestions of topics or speakers for this series (contact information below).
All the Cambridge Physics Centre Lectures take place at the Cavendish Laboratory, Madingley Road, Cambridge, from: 6pm, in the Pippard Lecture Theatre. The lecture theatre holds 450 people so booking is not necessary but if you are in a large group we recommend that you arrive in plenty of time.
The schedule for 2014-15 is now confirmed and 'pdf' posters with abstracts will be updated here regularly as links from the titles.
