After last year’s hugely successful open day with over 2,500 visitors, NPL is to open again in early March next year.
The world-leading centre of excellence for accurate science, technology and standards will be open on Wednesday 14th March 2012 from 2-8pm. Visitors will be able to wander around some of the worlds most sophisticated and accurate measurement devices and wonder at the amazing work that goes on in the laboratories on-site in Teddington.
By the end of the day your head will be brimming with new knowledge gained from the various rooms and labs on the NPL campus and from the friendly scientists on hand to help explain their work.
The lecture theatre will be hosting short talks on a series of subjects ranging from the history of NPL to fun science talks. Throughout the day you will also have the chance to conduct your own experiments on the day proving at the very least that science is fun!
You can read about what to expect from highlights of last year’s open day. Rest assured that the liquid nitrogen ice-cream will be making an appearance again and you will be able to visit the famous reverberation and anechoic chambers used for measuring sound equipment.
Visitors are required to register in advance so that numbers are manageable.
