SCIENCE NEWS : YEAR 12 PHYSICS EXCURSION

On 20 June 2016, the Year 12 Physics class travelled to The University of Sydney to participate in a series of experiments related to their studies.

As part of the ‘KickStart’ program we were involved in a number of investigations regarding such phenomena as the photoelectric effect, the Meisner effect and semiconductors related to the core module: Ideas to Implementation.

We then headed over to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Here, we investigated the operation of medical imaging equipment such as X-ray, ultrasound, CAT and MRI. The day was incredibly informative and allowed us to see first-hand the impact that physics has in the lives of people every day.  We are very grateful to Mr Roberts for his support and guidance on the day.
