INFORM ESRs at Imperial Festival 2018

On 28th and 29th April INFORM ESRs demonstrated and explained their research area to the general public at Imperial Festival, a hands-on outreach event at Imperial College London that attracts around 15000 visitors. Together with Imperial’s Centre for Plastic Electronics (CPE), they ran a stand that included demonstrations of organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, sensors and batteries, along with a UV-illuminated tent to illustrate fluorescence. A particular highlight was the “glove-box challenge”, in which visitors had to weigh out a precise amount of metal as fast as possible within an imitation glove-box – 11 seconds was the record!
