Secondary school students explored engineering at ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS), taking in activities, tours and a ‘Fizz Bang Zap’ show, giving a flavour of real-world engineering at ISIS.
Swansea University has pioneered a new way to connect with the community through science. Oriel Science takes the University’s research and packages it into interactive and thought-provoking exhibits to increase the public’s awareness and interest in science.
A team of scientists from the University of Oxford and the Central Laser Facility (CLF), has used high-power lasers to recreate the sort of supersonic turbulence found in star-forming nebulae.
Through photosynthesis, plants are brilliant at converting the Sun’s energy into fuel – humans, not so much. A collaboration between Newcastle University and Sorbonne Université is aiming to rectify this by creating fuel through artificial photosynthesis.
The subterranean world of the Boulby Underground Laboratory is a place of extremes rarely captured by an artist’s sketch. Last month, two artists spent a week in Boulby’s dark tunnels to investigate how art is made and used in conditions deep underground.
School students celebrated six months of work on real engineering projects as part of the Engineering Education Scheme (EES) at the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Rutherford Appleton Laboratory this week.
A team of scientists from Oxford, Liverpool, Maryland and the Central Laser Facility (CLF) have used the Astra Laser to develop an innovative way to keep laser beams focused over long distances.
US biotechnology start-up LivFul has set up a UK research base at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory as part of its global mission to save lives from malaria and other insect-borne diseases.
It’s not every day that science communicators from across the globe can be in the same place for stimulating discussions and exchanging best practices.
A group of primary school teachers have stepped out of the classroom and into the laboratory to learn how to inspire the next generation of budding scientists and innovators.
