Science students visit NPL

Wednesday 4 December 2013

On Wednesday 4 December, first year BTEC science students visited the National Physical Laboratory as part of a coursework assignment in which they compared specialist and non-specialist laboratories.

 The trip saw the students meet some of the NPL's top scientists, and receive inspiring presentations on advances in tumour removals as well as demonstrations of the dramatic effects of liquid nitrogen. As part of the day, the group also toured some of the NPL's industry leading facilities including the mass measurement laboratory, where they got to hold a rare and expensive copy of the UK National Standard Kilogram.
