Science Outreach and Engagement


Scopic - 'Stargazing Down a Microscope'

In 2008 the Science Outreach team also acted as the astronomy consultant and local organiser for a joint Durham University / Medical Research Council Clinical Sciences Centre project. Scopic - 'Stargazing Down a Microscope' was a joint science-arts project for schools. A panel of judges including Baroness Susan Greenfield, Dr Brian May, Sir Patrick Moore and Professor Robert Winston selected work for special mention. The outcome of the project was an exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall during May 2008 followed by a permanent exhibition showcasing the results of the project in the Calman Learning Centre installed in June 2008.
