We have an open invitation for school classes to visit our center. The goal is to give a taste of physics and the life of researchers and students here. This community engagement challenges us to be able to explain complicated physics through easy, understandable words and examples.
Maybe we will see some of them as our future students?
We had a visit of thirty Vg3 students from Greveskogen High School,Tønsberg. We gave a presentation of our work before they visited our new MBR lab for growing new materials. The students visit was part of a program preparing them for applying to studies, .e.g at NTNU.
“It was exciting and relevant for our students to get some insight of the research at QuSpin, and how it is to work as researchers within theoretical physics. Many of our students are seeking a research career, and would like to know more about this. They left with a better understanding of this after the presentation at the research center.”

We had a visit of a group of curious twelve years old children from Trondheim International School. They challenged our ability to explain advanced physics in a simple way, including demonstrating "Flying magnets". This always triggers the students interest.
