School visit to ICG for National Science and Engineering Week

Twenty year-8 pupils from St Edmund's School, Portsmouth, visited the ICG as part of National Engineering and Science Week. The 12 and 13 year-old students heard a talk from ICG Director, Prof David Wands, about how astronomers map the Universe, from the Solar System to the Big Bang. The pupils became part of a human Doppler shift demonstration organised by Dominic Galliano and had the chance to ask David, Dom and three other graduate students (Jon Emery, Yuting Wang and Georgia Kittou) about colliding galaxies, black holes, the edge of the Universe, and much more.
