Publicity and Outreach

Group Leader Chick Wilson was fortunate enough to win the Thomas Graham medal of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow in 2011, delivering "excellent research to a general audience" in a lively meeting!

The group are heavily engaged with a range of activities attempting both to disseminate our research and pass on our excitement about science.  You will find us regularly at Science Fairs, in Cafes and pubs and other odd places, in schools and colleges, demonstrating "Spectroscopy in a Suitcase" and just generally spreading the word!


Some recent activities and publicity can be found below.

Group Leader Chick Wilson has delivered a number of public lectures and discussions over the last few years, largely on the topics of:

"Mysterious case of Misbehaving Molecules!" 

"Discovery of the Elements: Geography and Fame"

and a new offering

"Making Things Work min the Mysterious Metastable World"


Locations include The Pint of Scence Festival, Cafes Scientifique, Talking Science (Daresbury), the Thomas Graham Lecture (Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgw), The Gilmorehill G12 Theatre, and a range of schools and colleges.


An interview with the magazine Laboratory News can be found here.
