Nyborg Gymnasium

On Jan. 29 and Feb 5, roughly 100 first-year students from Nyborg Gymnasium, split into three groups led by their instructors Francesca Sarri, Kurt Strickertsson, and Mikael Samsøe Sørensen, came to visit CP3-Origins. The program was organized by postdoc Jonathan Ganc. Each group heard three 30-minute introductory lectures from CP3 faculty or postdocs about relevant topics in their areas of expertise. The students, divided further into groups of 5 or smaller, were taken to see a cloud chamber built by CP3 PhD students Kasper Langæble and Niklas Grønlund Nielsen, who presented their creation and explained to the students about the tracks visible from a radioactive source and from cosmic rays.

On top of providing a beneficial educational opportunity for Danish students and to stimulate interest in physics in general, the visit also provided an opportunity to demonstrate the vitality of the science research at CP3-Origins, hopefully leading some of the attendees to study physics at SDU and become further involved with CP3-Origins. Indeed, the feedback from the experience was quite positive, both from explicit statements from the attendees and their teachers, and from the many excellent questions asked by the student during the lectures and demonstrations.

The students’ schedules were as follows:
