The Nature and Beauty of Mathematics
In this course, students will explore the world of fractals, multiple dimensions, irrational numbers and their relationship with the natural world, the mathematics of paper folding and topology, the nature of mathematics itself, as well as the complexities of infinity.
Brainstorm: Big Ideas in Neuroscience
Brainstorm: Big Ideas in Neuroscience will tackle what we already know about the brain and how cutting edge technologies are changing this, using a mix of videos, discussion, practical activities, guest speakers, group and individual work.
Bioinformatics explores how we use technology to understand DNA and genetic codes. Students will examine the structure and function of the cell, DNA and proteins, the development and uses of genetic technology.
Captivating students’ personal interests and building from a highly accessible, first principles approach into the development of genuine understanding, Synchrotron Science will dive into the physics, properties and scientific applications of the synchrotron.
Frontiers of Physics
In Frontiers of Physics, students journey through the Universe where they explore the phenomenon of black holes, quasars, dark matter and dark energy. We discuss how stars, the solar system and other objects are formed and link this to the likelihood of life existing on these objects.
Learn about the way Earth Science affects our everyday lives, including exploring concepts connected to meteorology, hydrology, seismology and geology, and their application to real-world data, problems and predictions.
