Trio Sci Cymru

The £8m European funded project is overseen by the Welsh Government’s Science Academy and will deliver workshops to Key Stage Three Students (Years 7,8 and 9) across Wales in partnership with Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea Universities, and the Institute of Physics. Physics will be involved in offering an exciting outreach package based on the Departments research.

Aberystwyth Physics department are pleased to be a delivery partner in the Trio Sci Cymru project. Trio Sci Cymru has designed a series of workshops that highlight the latest space science to get young people of all abilities developing their scientific skills to explore other worlds. In the workshops, students will design a model mission to Mars, plan a day in the life of an exploratory rover and discover how rockets travel through space and land on a distant planet. Over the next few years, real world scientific missions will investigate the Sun, Mars and search for planets around other stars. Our sessions will help place these other worldly activities into the context of the school science curriculum, stimulating students in a fun and engaging environment.

During the 2019/20 school year we will be presenting three new exciting Physics workshops, Energy, Motion and Forces in Space, Land on Mars and Surviving in Space. Please contact triosci@aber.ac.uk or 01970 622439 for further information.
