Absolutely no holiday homework In Year 12 students will study context led topics: Higher, Faster, Stronger explores speed and motion, forces and energy in sport; Good Enough to Eat explores how Physics is used in the food industry; Spare Part Surgery looks at how material properties are important for prosthetic science; The Sound of Music explores how waves make sound and the nature and uses of light in sound recording playback; Technology in Space looks at components of control systems (for example electrical circuitry, solar cells) and remote sensing; Digging up the Past explores the uses of Physics in archaeology. The course is practically based with experiments used to help you understand the theory. We visit Thorpe Park early in the first term for our coursework, you will then write up a short report on the visit and carry out a practical investigation related to the visit.
