Undergraduates can take an optional third year module on 'Communicating Science'. This involves several assessed assignments including writing a short fact sheet explaining a topic in physics or the physical principles behind the workings of an everyday object or phenomenon. The level of the fact sheets is aimed at an audience of schoolchildren who are nearing the end of their GCSE studies.
Some of these 'Fact Sheets' are given below, please note that means of identification of the authors has been removed.
- The age of the universe
- Radiation in the real world
- Supernovae in star evolution
- The colour of fireworks
- What is a supernova
These fact sheets are the works of students therefore their accuracy can not be guaranteed.
