On the 5th of February Destination Space took place at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Dozens of children came to our booth to try pedagogical experiments and learn more about science. Questions were also asked about our PhDs and our day-to-day life at work.
The kids had a lot of fun playing with the Theremin and were blown away by optical experiments! It was also the perfect occasion to introduce basic physical concepts such as waves and light propagation.
We joined ESR Yifang Wei from the TESLA project and the cross-collaboration was a huge success allowing the kids to hear about the different projects and the research that we carry out as part of the projects.
