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.
‘The science of the circus’ took place at two community centres in Halton this week.
Engineering apprentices from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and Daresbury Laboratory have come together to share skills and knowledge from different projects.
Exploring Extreme Environments (E3) is an education project that supports children’s education in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
The UK Space Agency has awarded a consortium that includes ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS) a £560,000 grant to develop an innovative new spacecraft propulsion system that runs on the ultimate ‘green’ propellant: water.
Experiments at Daresbury Laboratory’s CLARA accelerator are part of a major research project studying the potential for an alternative form of radiotherapy to treat deep seated tumours.
Scientists from Swansea University have used ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to investigate a new and, potentially, ‘greener’ way to extract oil that might otherwise remain trapped deep within rocks.
A Level students from the North West Science Network joined us on 27 March to discover first-hand the incredible science and engineering taking place here at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory.
Tori Blakeman, an Impact and Engagement Officer at STFC’s Daresbury Laboratory, works to communicate stories about STFC’s innovation activity. She took part in the recent I’m a Scientist online competition, sponsored by STFC, which helps school children identify with people who work in science.
