    The Particle Physics Summer School is a FREE three day residential course introducing pupils aged 14-15 to Particle Physics, Science and Engineering. It will be held at St Paul’s School, London from Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 July 2020.

    The course is organised and run in partnership between St Paul’s School, the Institute of Physics and Queen Mary University of London. It brings to life the complex subject of particle physics through a series of workshops and lectures led by teachers and academic researchers. The course will demonstrate the importance of the field across the sciences, engineering and computer science.

    This unique course is open to 24 non-fee paying school pupils from across the UK and is entirely free to attend. A maximum of three pupils from any one school will be selected and places will be allocated on the basis of a simple application form requiring a short statement from both pupils and teachers. As this course takes place during term time approval must be given by the pupil’s school, otherwise they cannot attend. We particularly encourage pupils with a keen interest in STEM and particle physics to apply.

    Please visit the school website here for more information and to apply. The application deadline is Thursday 30 April 2020, applications received after this date will not be considered.

    Eligibility Criteria

    · Must attend a UK non-fee paying school

    · Must be completing year 10 or equivalent

    · Must receive permission from school to attend

    · Pupils may apply for both the Magic of Materials and Particle Physics Summer Schools but will only be accepted on one

    Are students expected to be accompanied by a member of staff from their school and will staff be accommodated too?
