What is so exciting about physics?

From Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge:

We are pleased to announce the launch of 'What is so exciting about physics?', a short booklet written by young female physicists to explain why we think physics is the most exciting subject to study beyond GCSE (not that we are biased in any way...). 
The booklet showcases several young women with backgrounds in physics, who now work in a wide range of fields- from law to online games and medical research. We hope you enjoy reading their stories as much as we have! It also includes a quiz and some more information on what physics is really about. 
If you're part of a school or other organisation and would like hard copies of the booklet to distribute, please contact us.

Download the booklet here.
