Transition Year Week 2022

Physics Transition Year Week 2021/2022 took place from Monday 21st - Friday 25th February 2022 inclusive.

The week included:

  • attending lectures from physics researchers
  • hands-on lab experiments
  • tours of research labs and facilities, UCC campus and more
  • working in a group to develop your own physics projects
  • ....and all of your physics questions answered! (Where does gravity come from? Can we simulate the entire universe? Will we ever be able to teleport?) 

Department contacts for this TY programme are Aileen McCarthy/Nini Schwart (Job-share) at
