Back To (Easter) School

For the 2017–18 academic year, the Ordered Universe Project has continued its partnership with OxNet, an outreach scheme superintended by Pembroke College, Oxford. So far this year, students from local schools have attended evening seminars taught by leading academics from Durham and Sunderland Universities, and now those students have been invited to spend two days at Durham University to get a taste of university life while continuing to explore some of the topics that are closest to the hearts and minds of the members of the Ordered Universe Project.

The theme of this year’s project is ‘Light, Colour and the Cosmos: Exploring Themes in Medieval and Modern Science’ and while in Durham the students will visit Palace Green Library, the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology, have lectures from art historians, physicists and medieval philosophers, and eat, sleep, and study at St John’s College, Durham.

We can’t wait to work with this year’s group of students again and to take them on a tour of the medieval and modern universe.
