Lyn commenting

Lyn told the boys that the established basic physics they were learning on that day was still relevant even though
his work centres around modern theories in particle physics and cosmology. Ohm's Law is still used in magnet design!

BBC coverage

BBC Wales was at the school and interviewed Lyn as well as the boys. Here the cameraman John Foakes is getting ready for the reporter
Kate Scott-Williams to give the ‘piece to camera’. You can see the TV report by clicking here.
