Stimulating Physics: Industry Visits

Video clip of a physics-based industrial visit to Sharp Laboratories of Europe Ltd. During the pilot The Industrial Trust organised over sixty visits for schools. Industry visits were arranged to show how physics at school leads to industrial application. In addition, students were shown examples of careers that are made accessible through studying physics. Each visit had four distinct elements, which illustrate generic good practice in setting up educational industry visits: *The introduction of the host organisation and the dissemination of health and safety notices. *The introduction of classroom concepts in real world contexts. *Engagement with suitable role models. *Help for teachers to plan and prepare for the visit with students, and advice on how to follow it up with reinforcing activities.
