Physics / TRUTHS Lecture
« on: April 15, 2007, 08:08:54 AM »
We have over 5 people signed up now, but reading the times suggested the only weekday option is Wednesday when there is an update - so SL will be down until after 8pm. Its not sensible to schedule events then, so the only other option I can offer is Saturday or Sunday evening at 7pm.

Any comments or should we perhaps try 9pm on Wednesday?

Physics / Physics Induction Sessions
« on: March 17, 2007, 07:48:06 PM »
Thanks to everyone who came to the Physics Induction Sessions this week. We NPL folk enjoyed them, and I hope you got some ideas from them.

We have several options planned for the physics club as it gets underway, depending on your interests. For example we could tour the physics exhibits with you - and discuss topics like nanotechnology, climate change (whether the sun is cooling for example). Have you seen Al Gore's film - An Inconvenient Truth? Would you like to discuss it? Would you like to learn about cosmic radiation, air travel and manned travel to Mars?

Since we're at the National Physical Laboratory - thats where we keep all the primary measurement standards, perhaps you'd like to learn how we're planning to change the SI system to be even more accurate? Where is the Kilogram and what does it look like? How does an atomic force microscope work and how is it possible to measure forces inside a molecule?

Anyway for those of you intending to come to the physics club we need to know whether you can make the lunchtime sessions next week or if we should reschedule to later in the afternoon. Let us know.

And we need to know if there are anymore of you out there who would like to join the Physics group, so we may reschedule an additional induction session for you.

Please answer in this thread or sign up directly for sessions in the Wiki.
