The Cavendish Laboratory team are very conscious of their role in communicating the importance and excitement of contemporary physics and its cognate disciplines to young people and the general public.

Our Educational Outreach Office stimulates interest and encourages wider participation in physics amongst 11-19 year olds. These initiatives are all the more important in the light of the needs of the country for more physics teachers and for a more scientifically literate population. Solving many of the challenges facing the world will rely heavily upon public appreciation of what science can do to better the world.
