Please note that the Science Centre exhibitions will be closed on all Mondays except school and public holidays. Lab lessons for schools will continue as per normal on closure days. We thank you for your understanding.

In the advanced version of the workshop, participants will get additional exposure to laboratory equipment (signal generator ) and not just measure the speed of light, but also investigate some of the difficulties (and solutions) in achieving a sufficiently fast response of the optoelectronic detector registering the laser beam. Participants thus gain an appreciation how multiple scientific concepts/phenomena (in this case not just light, but also the wave nature of electric signals travelling in cables and electrostatic capacitance) show up in any real scenario and need to be taken into account.

wave motion; light; reflections; DC circuits; interpretation of oscilloscope waveforms, use of oscilloscope; photoelectric effect
