Deaglan Farren TYB participated in the Physics/Nanoscience Workshop in TCD on Tuesday, 1st March 2016. The Trinity College School of Physics hosts a number of outreach events during their academic year. Their popular Transition Year Physics Experience (TYPE) is held in November. It lasts a full week and introduces secondary school pupils to nanophysics and astrophysics. Deaglan was unlucky in the lottery for the week in November but undeterred, he secured a place on the one-day workshop in March with a choice between physics, nanophysics or astrophysics. Deaglan took the workshop on physics. He enjoyed his time with the School of Physics and the experience of college life. Well done, Deaglan!
