Girls do Physics

Girls Do Physics is a new partnership between St Helen’s and our closest neighbour, Larkmead School, aimed at inspiring girls to continue studying Physics to GCSE and A Level.  A group of 30 Year 9 girls from Larkmead come to St Helen’s for five 'Girls Do Physics' sessions during this academic year, making use of the fantastic facilities in the Science Centre. The focus of each session is different but always active and hands-on, with a new  teacher in the Physics department involved each time. The students have a chance to delve deeper into a fascinating range of physics topics, including astrophysics, medical physics, engineering and careers and aptitude. A practical workshop will round off the last session of the year.
