We are the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex, and we have a large and well established Outreach Programme. Our aim is to encourage more students to study physics at A-level and beyond, and to offer support to those teaching physics.
Who we are
The University of Sussex is part of SEPnet, the South East Physics Network, a network of universities all working together to promote physics through developing and delivering high-quality outreach.
What we do
- We offer a large range of FREE outreach activities to local schools and colleges, for a range of ages
- Teachers and students can engage with our activities either here at the University of Sussex campus in Brighton, or we can travel to you (conditions apply - your venue must be within a 45 minute travel time of the University of Sussex in Brighton)
- During the 2014/5 academic year, we worked with over 12,500 students from over 100 different schools and colleges at over 130 events.
- Our large variety of physics and astronomy activities are delivered by either our outreach officer, our researchers, or our trained postgraduate and undergraduate students - all serving as wonderful role models for the next generation of physicists.
