A SPEAKER who combined comedy, magic tricks and quantum physics has inspired pupils at a Worcester school.

Nic Harrington, who is a comedian, magician computing expert and quantum physicist, visited Christopher Whitehead Language College to talk about quantum computers.

Dr Harrington showed the students a magic trick in which a model atom of a giant Lego brick changed colour to demonstrate how quantum physics works.

He also talked about the possibility of quantum computing and how powerful technology could become with students in the school’s sixth form.

Dr Harrington visited the St John’s school as part of its programme of Impetus inspirational speakers.
