## Visiting Isaac Newton’s birthplace

On 26 May our maths and physics students and staff visited Woolsthorpe Manor — the birthplace of Isaac Newton, where he also spent much time in 1665-67 making most important discoveries in maths and physics, in particular, laying foundations of Calculus, conducting experiments with light. Here still grows the famous apple tree, the falling of […]
