When your model can be tested

On a University of Bristol Preview/Open Day

If you are a school student, and you have made your own model, you can bring it to be tested along with other models on one of the University of Bristol Preview or Open Days. These are usually held between May and July each year, and will be advertised on the University web-site.

Register your name with us if you want to be informed of dates and times when your model can be tested.

By Special Arrangement

If you are a school teacher, you can contact us to arrange a time to have your students' models tested. You must have at least 10 models to do this. Please contact us well in advance, because:

  • We have to fit the tests in between our laboratory research programme.

  • There are a limited number of days when we can do this.

NOTE: Our new laboratory is currently under construction, so we can't do any tests until after March 2005.
