Since 2010, the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge has presented this Widening Participation opportunity to several thousand secondary pupils. The target audience for the project is schools which have low rates of progression to HE, as located by use of the POLAR 3 participation survey. The talk will demonstrate some of the activities used and will present data on the effectiveness of the programme in influencing young people’s views of Physics and its place among their perceived career options.
