Summer Science Exhibition

We were delighted to participate in the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2016. Our exhibit gave the public a unique opportunity to learn about the fascinating properties of diamond, as well as its diverse scientific applications.


The Diamond Science and Technology CDT team and Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces group took part in "Lates: the next big thing" at the Science Museum in London. Exhibits ranged from "Whodungit?" to "From Robot Ethics to Ethical Robots". We invited the public to discover why diamond is not just a gemstone...
