Does anyone know of any work experience placements/schemes for Year 12 Students related to Science?

Hi,

Basically I'm looking to do a few weeks work experience this summer holiday to bump up my UCAS application for Physics, but would be happy with any science related placement such as in a lab/ observatory etc. Does anyone know of any placements or schemes in/near London still open to application? I've already applied to the Nuffield Bursary but I'm struggling to find anywhere else.

THANKS!

P.s. Please dont post general ideas such as "phone up a local uni" as I've already done all of that :)

As a general science placement perhaps some work as a lab technician in a sixth form/college/school. Don't know if this is any help for you but it's something I have done :)

Thanks ceegee, what was the name of the place you did your placement? Was it in London? As I said in the question, I've done all the generic stuff, I'm looking for specifics, thanks!

Oh no sorry it wasn't in London it was in my local area but I'm sure you could find something similar in London :)

This might be a bit generic for you but try asking some of the science teachers at your school if they have any contacts that would be willing to take you. I did that and my chemistry teacher knew someone and they said that I could have work experience with them next year as I am still too young!
