A chance to visit Diamond Light Source and see inside the synchrotron. The visit consists of a talk about Diamond; the accelerator and the research that we conduct, as well as a tour inside the machine and a visit to one of our beamlines (experimental areas). There is also time to talk to our researchers and engineers who will be conducting the tours.
An individual class virtual visit to Diamond is a chance for teachers and students to virtually visit Diamond Light Source at a time to suit you and your class. They are arranged directly with individual schools.
A virtual lab visit at a set time where schools can see inside one of Diamond's laboratories and meet one of our experts. This type of visit will last for a maximum of 30 minutes, during which you and your students will virtually visit one of the labs within Diamond to see how it operates and get a chance to question the experts that work there.
An event looking at some of the opportunities available in the fields of science and engineering. It comprises of a series of workshops and a short tour of Diamond. It is a chance to see the range of scientific careers available, meet some researchers and perform some experiments.
An event looking at the careers and opportunities open to students in the area of engineering. It comprises of a series of workshops and a short tour of Diamond. The day gives students a chance to perform some experiments and talk to current engineers about their experiences.
An event looking at the careers and opportunities open to students in the area of computing. It consists of a series of workshops and a short tour of Diamond. The day gives students a chance to perform some experiments and talk to current data scientists and software engineers about their experiences.
A series of lectures and workshops exploring cutting edge particle physics, the event will include a visit to either the Diamond Light Source or ISIS particle accelerators.
We conduct a large amount of world leading biological research here at Diamond, particularly in the area of crystallography. This is the chance to visit Diamond for a series of lectures, workshops and lab work investigating the journey from gene to protein and what we can learn from looking at protein shape and structure.
As well as on-site visits, we also arrange for members of Diamond staff or visiting scientists to go into schools, meet students and give a talks/lectures on the work that we do at Diamond. For primary ages we have developed a series of demonstrations and mini-experiments to help engage with students.
As well as our regular events we also run occasionally run special events, have a look here to see if we have any coming up.
Diamond is part of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories, many of the other facilities on site are run by STFC who also run a range of exciting opportunities for schools and the public.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
