In my continuing quest to actually have some income while writing up improve access to education for all, I'll be helping some Sutton Trust summer school students as they attempt the first year optics practicals next week. By an unfortunate quirk of scheduling, I must go straight from doing this to London, to have a chat about my future employment. This means that I shall be showing students how friendly and unstuffy Oxford is by... demonstrating optics practicals in a suit and tie.

Brilliant! I think you should do the entire thing in the style of a lecturer the old OU videos aired at 3am. What we in the hoodz call old-skool, innit? Ooh, ooh, or you could get a pipe.

In all seriousness, I think the best thing potentially worried sixth-formers can learn about Oxford is that people-in-suits/sub-fusc/black tie are people too. They're going to meet such people when they arrive anyway. :)

Besides, you manage to look charmingly unstuffy in your black tie above. :) Not that I'm recommending that you help out while drunk. Lasers are scary and best met sober!
