Public Engagement

We are very keen to talk with members of the public about our work. Please contact us if you would like to know more. In addition we can visit Schools to talk about magnetic resonance (we even have a portable EPR spectrometer), spectroscopy in general (with flame tests), magnetism, bacteria, antibiotics, being (wo)men in science or a variety of other topics. I have developed a primary school engagement activity called Atomic Colour which has also been used at Science Open Days.

Janet is a STEM ambassador.

Some demonstrations from Atomic Colour at the Science Discovery Day - with an attendance of about 700 members of the public - in the School of Physics and Astronomy 2018:
