Cambridge Physics Experience
This one day programme consists of a morning tour of a Cambridge college, followed by information about studying at Cambridge, and advice on Higher Education and applying to Cambridge. This is followed by a physics activity at the Cavendish Laboratory, where students take part in a practical session and are given presentations on curriculum physics as well as exciting research topics.
CPE events are thoroughly enjoyed by students and teachers alike. Schools from all over the country have made the trip to Cambridge to take part in the event.

CPE events have several aims which include increasing participation in physics and changing perceptions and stereotypes of Physics and Cambridge University. Students and teachers that attend the CPE are asked to fill out a Post-Questionnaire in order to assess the success of these aims.To book this activity, please contact:
