Applications are open for a three-day summer school in physics for Black heritage students

Are you a student in London of Black heritage and interested in studying physics at A-level or as an undergraduate?

If so, then make sure you apply for a three-day programme this summer brought to you by the Blackett Lab Family – the UK’s first national network of Black British physicists.

The events, which include lectures, demonstrations and careers talks, will take place at Imperial College London, the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington and the Institute of Physics in London.

To apply for the programme, you will need to be a student of Black or mixed-Black heritage, in Year 11 or 12 and based in London.

Those selected will have their expenses covered, including travel and food, as well as receive some “exclusive” merchandise.

Applications close on 26 May and in the meantime don’t forget to check out our #BlackinPhysics collection.
