Event details

This course is designed to enable technicians to be more confident in supporting the teaching of practical physics and provides opportunity to share expertise. Suitable for: Technicians. Course led by Samir Moezzi.

This course assumes you have a basic level of experience in physics.  if not, you would be advised to attend the Introduction to Supporting Physics teaching for Technicians course first.

What will the course include?

Safety overview of hazard identification and risk assessment with demonstrations, including lasers, microwaves, ionising radiations, heat, flammable liquids, electrical and mechanical hazards.

  • Electricity - work with Extra High Tension power supplies, Transformers & power lines, electron beam tubes and the Van de Graaff generator
  • Low voltage work including using ammeters, voltmeters & multimeters, thermistors, light dependent resistors and electric motors
  • Model steam engines; how to set one up, and what to look for before each use
  • Ionising radiation; wavers; Oscilloscopes and signal generators, the Rubens tube, Lasers and LEDs

Some prior familiarisation with section 12 of the CLEAPSS Laboratory handbook would be helpful for attending this course. 

Course Fee:  £125 per person attending
