This year Rothschild, the global financial services, decided to host their summer networking event for top people from their clients around the West Midlands, in support of the Physics Factory.

It was held at Birmingham’s science museum, the ThinkTank, surrounded by displays of technological innovations created or built in Birmingham from a spitfire built in Castle Bromwich to robots from Longbridge’s car industry.

John Collins, Secretary to the Governors at the King Edward VI schools in Birmingham, Alistair Allen, Director at Rothschild, Birmingham and Dan Cottle, Head of Physics at King Edward VI Five Ways school and Director of the Physics Factory gave speeches outlining the need for more Physics interventions and inspiration in Birmingham schools, how the Physics Factory addresses some of these needs and is a model of good practice in the area.

Our enormous thanks go to Rothschild for holding this event and raising profile of the Physics Factory.
