Magic of Materials Summer School 2020, Postponed

This course is now postponed.

The Magic of Materials Summer School is a FREE three day residential course introducing pupils aged 14-15 to Materials Science and Engineering.

The course is organised and run in partnership between St Paul’s School and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). It brings to life the complex and diverse subject of materials science through a series of workshops and lectures led by teachers, academics and industry experts. The course will demonstrate the importance of the field across the sciences, engineering and technology.

This unique course is open to 24 non-fee paying school pupils from across the UK and is entirely free to attend. A maximum of three pupils from any one school will be selected and places will be allocated on the basis of a simple application form requiring a short statement from both pupils and teachers. As this course takes place during term time approval must be given by the pupil’s school, otherwise they cannot attend. We particularly encourage pupils with a keen interest in STEM, materials science and physics in particular to apply.
