Adam Mullins Goes to Trinity and Beyond!
I recently participated in TYPE or the Transition Year Physics Experience in TCD. This is a week where a select number of TY students from all over Ireland get a chance to experience what it is like to study Physics in Trinity. As part of TYPE I took part in several experiments such as clouding levitation and the collision of two hydrogen particles. These were both very new and interesting experiences. I also took part in a day trip to Dunsink Observatory where I got to learn about Astrophysics and watch solar flares using a telescope. This was definitely a worthwhile week and I would recommend that anyone thinking of doing Physics for the Leaving Cert. should apply for this programme.
