Lab in a Lorry: Volunteers needed!

Lab in a Lorry: Volunteers needed!

Smash a wine glass with sound, create spiral rainbows, use light to heal wounds and explore medical optoelectronics – volunteers needed!

Do these things sound intriguing? Are you interested in communicating science to a young
audience? Lab in a Lorry needs volunteers with a scientific or engineering background for
events across Wales during school term time from September 2015 until March 2017.

What is Lab in a Lorry?

Lab in a Lorry is an interactive mobile laboratory, which gives young people (11–14 year
olds) the opportunity to explore science through open-ended experiments. Volunteers guide
the students through the experiments (optoelectronics and medicine, sound and resonance,
light scattering and colours) and make sure everyone gets to be involved through hands-on
experience.

What would I have to do?

You would be asked to oversee an experiment for the day. You receive all the background
materials in advance and on the morning of an event you receive full training on the lab.

Lab in a Lorry ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of one full school day, but you are welcome to volunteer for as many days as you like. In return you’ll have a rewarding and unforgettable
experience, receive some IOP freebies and also be awarded affiliate membership to the
Institute of Physics for a year!

More information?
