Maths-Physics-Chemistry Xmas event

It was great to have students from Lincoln UTC and The Priory Academy LSST for our joint Maths-Physics-Chemistry Christmas event with mini-lecture, workshops, a quiz and some nibbles. It covered maths of birds flocking, physics of chaos, and lots of funny and not so easy chemistry questions during the quiz.
