Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar

Type Of Presentation Workshop Facilitator
Geographic Reach Local
Primary Audience Schools
Results and Impact This was an event funded by the Ogden Trust where all the local schools nominated a pupil who excelled in Physics to be awarded 'Physicist of the Year'. Before the award giving we had an hour to demonstrate some of the research going on in Durham University Physics. We had various demonstrations, including a hands-on demonstration of a pair of scales showing that the Universe does not weigh enough if we just use what we see. We had a gravitational lensing demonstration where the visitors were the mass bending the light (this used a Xbox kinect and Wii controller). We also had a 3D interactive simulation where you can scan around the dark matter Universe.
