I must be totally losing it. I’ve just agreed to lead a residential school in December for gifted and talented A2 students (final year of high school - 18 years old). I must be crazy - taking responsibility for 20 17/18 year olds, and attempting to stretch their knowledge of physics beyond A-Level.
And if that’s not crazy enough, I’ve also agreed to go into a school, and spend an entire day teaching physics/stretching their ability to a group of 15/16/17 year olds.
Someone tell me I’m not going mad, I am sane really, aren’t I?
And to top it all off, the office coffee machine appears to have exploded, spilling coffee everywhere. Still, at least the office smells nice now.
However, if anyone has any ideas as to what I could do with these groups of students, I’d be very grateful. For the residential school, I’m thinking of doing a bit on cosmologyastrophysics/star formation, something on special relativity, and a session on optics. Anyone got any other bright ideas?
