Aston University Sixth Form Year 12 students were given an opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise learnt with us with the young people in Birmingham. This event consisted of a day spent at Ark Academy leading 4 workshops with groups of students into the world of photonics and how these technologies are changing how we work.

The workshops explored the physics our year 12 students have studied this year in the waves and quantum topics, with our students leading the workshops and demonstrating lasers and other wave phenomena to year 9 students. They were able to use this experience as further evidence of their scientific communication, interpersonal and leadership skills in their UCAS applications.
