Lectures for Schools
The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science run a series of free lectures for schools on electronic engineering and computer science topics, in which the Antennas group is actively participating.
We aim to enthuse students, challenge stereotypes and to raise awareness about the major role both fields play in our lives. These are based around our latest research and designed to give students a deeper insight into electronic engineering and computer science, whether or not they intend to study them at university.
The lectures are suitable for students at all levels, and the presentations are adapted according to the age and interests of the group. These lectures are relevant not only to students studying engineering, computer science and related topics (such as maths and physics), but also for a wider audience — for example, as part of a General Studies or careers class, or just as a one-off.
Current talks on offer from the Antennas Group
- Let's talk about the weather
- Spies like us
- The magic of Harry Potter! Can we make Cloaking a reality?
Other topics are also possible.
A lecturer from the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science will come to your school to give the talk. The lectures last from 30-60 minutes, adaptable to your requirements. Please contact us to discuss our availability and your aims for the talk. We can generally travel to schools within commuting distance of London. Longer distances may also be possible by arrangement. More school talks options are also available.
