Event details

Take a guided tour of the School of Physics and Astronomy and go behind the scenes of physics research on Saturday 29 September at the James Clerk Maxwell Building on the King’s Building campus. You will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of hands-on activities alongside staff and students, including having the chance to make and take away your own slime!  Tours include a visit to the anechoid chamber (part of the acoustics group), a bio-physics lab (studying the life, death and motion of bacterias) and a rheo-imaging lab (looking at unusually behaving mixtures). There is also the opportunity to visit activities delivered by other Schools based on the King's Building campus.
