The Lindemann Trust supports educational events for schools, making science exciting and accessible to pupils who ordinarily have no such opportunities. The Trust hosts up to three events a year for state primary schools, with Lindemann alumni and other university postgraduates presenting exciting ’bite-size’ talks and compelling demonstrations on aspects of science which are relevant to the school curriculum and to which the pupils can relate.
If you are a school or teacher who would be interested to hear more about our outreach work, please get in touch.
“Thank you for inviting us! The children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and were full of it once we returned to school. The opportunity to come to a place like Magdalene College and hear from Professors was a real treat so we would certainly jump at the chance again.” – Year 6 Class Teacher, Winhills Primary School, St Neots
“The children loved being in a real life lecture theatre and hearing from such knowledgeable people who clearly love their jobs. The children left inspired and enthused.” – Year 6 Class Teacher, Trumpington Meadows Primary School, Cambridgeshire
“As parents of kids in a struggling state school, this kind of event meant a lot more to us, and to many people, than the somewhat media-led efforts Oxbridge can excel in” – Parent of a Year 6 pupil, St Luke’s primary School, Cambridge
Here is a taster of the sort of presentation our outreach sessions might feature. In this video, Lindemann alumnus, Felix Flicker, tells us about the magic of condensed matter physics! Felix is currently a Lecturer in Physics at Cardiff University.
