Philippa Shepley and Joel Burton went along the Be Curious 2023 festival at the University of Leeds to share our Crystal Creation maker kits.
The NAME researchers were joined by other members of the Condensed Matter group to show demonstrations of how we can use X-rays and Bragg’s law to look inside materials. Understanding the crystal structure of a material helps us to figure out what we can use it for.
Families visiting Be Curious learned about the exciting history of X-ray diffraction and crystal structures at Leeds. They had a go at making their own crystal structures using the maker kits.
