On the 5th of February an exciting event called Destination Space took place at the museum in Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh. Florian Vidal and Thomas Strober (REVOLVE Fellows) joined Yifang Wei (TESLA Fellow) to showcase our research. Dozens of children came to their booth to try pedagogical experiments and learn more about science. Questions were also asked about their PhDs and day-to-day life at work in the University and on secondments.
The kids had a lot of fun playing with the Theremin and were blown away by the optical experiments. It was also the perfect opportunity to introduce basic physical concepts such as waves and light propagation!
