In the STFC-funded Epistemic Insight Initiative project, The Power of Light, a series of resources have been designed and informed by co-creation activities, pilot lessons, and workshops that involved children in schools and with their families in community spaces.
Zines use an appealing combination of text and images to create a concise comic-like narrative format to generate enthusiasm about a particular area of interest - the series of zines designed for this project focus on research taking place at Diamond Light Source.
Diamond has developed a board game aimed at giving school students an idea of the experiences and challenges involved in a career in scientific research. Click on the image to learn more about the game and how to apply for a class set of these games.
In response to the recent Coronavirus outbreak we have produced a version of Diamond: The Game that can be printed at home. To find out more and download for free click on the image.
Diamond has developed a set of interactive simulations for teachers in conjunction with the Virtual Physical Laboratory to explain the physics of the machine, including electric fields, electromagnetic radiation and vacuum properties. Each simulation demonstrates how this knowledge is applied at Diamond and provides instructions and theoretical background information on each area.
To accompany these simulations are a series of worksheets for A-level students including extra information and example calculations.
Diamond Light Source has developed a set of Dialogue activities for use in the classroom or community.
These debates focus on the use of peer review and the criteria by which we judge science – how would you decide which experiments should be carried out?
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
