The wonders of modern technology seem almost miraculous but they all owe much to the science of physics.

Today, for the first time, a team from the School of Physics at the University of Sydney will visit the city to demonstrate the science behind the technology.

High School students from around the district will be the first to see what is being described as an "extravaganza of physics" and tonight the
uni team will present the same show to the public.

Young people disengaged from their high school education now have another alternative.

Non-Government special school Alesco Learning Centre, under the banner of Equity for WEA Hunter, will set up a site at Robinson College, taking in 30 students by 2013.

Managers from Alesco as well as Robinson College yesterday held an information session at the Democratic Club about the new facility which offers formal education in a non-institutional environment.

It is available for students from years nine to 12, and 15 years of age and older.
