Life Sciences, Physics and Astronomy @ Uni of Sussex
What a day!
Hosted by the Departments of Life Science and Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex, students got a 'hands-on' with science: they explored the chemistry of stars, the physics of infra-red light and the biology behind medicines, they also met the next generation of scientific experts and found out options for further education and careers in science.
- The Pharmacy Shop – learn what goes into a diagnosis and the importance of correct treatments
- Genetic variation – explore the intricacies of what makes you unique
- Thermal camera – find yourself in usually invisible infra-red light
- Spectral lamps – observe the colour within to understand how we view gases in space
- Superconductivity – come and find out how to make things fly!
Here are a few pictures.
