Abstract

Doctoral Training Partnerships: a range of postgraduate training is funded by the Research Councils. For information on current funding routes, see the common terminology at www.rcuk.ac.uk/StudentshipTerminology. Training grants may be to one organisation or to a consortia of research organisations. This portal will show the lead organisation only.

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.
