Laura LewisHost: Laura studied at Royal Holloway University of London and the Open University. She is passionate about science communication and has presented talks about Exoplanets at Oxford University and Imperial College London.

In this class we will look at Pressure; what it is and how it works in terms of particles. We will discuss how pressure affects our everyday lives, using a wide range of examples from the weather to why camels have big feet!  We will then solve problems involving pressure calculations. 

This class covers a key topic which students will revisit time and time again throughout their studies in Science.  Join Laura today to grasp a firm foundation on all things Pressure.
