Event details

Get behind-the-scenes access to some of the leading soft-matter physics research being done right here in the School.

Researchers from the soft-matter group will take you on a guided tour of their workplace. You’ll find out how physicists design new soft materials and see the equipment they use to study them. Sign up for lab tours and take part in demonstrations. Hands-on demonstrations include, but are not limited to, making your own slime! (Yup, even the adults!)

"Doors Open Late" is part of Explorathon – Researchers’ Night Scotland and is essentially a sneak preview of "Doors Open Day" (www.doorsopendays.org.uk/opendays), which will be happening the next day.

Beat the crowds and say you did something with your Friday night and/or bring the kids and join the bustle on Saturday!
