Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Research Group welcomes LIYSF 2015
During your visit to the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces group, you will have a chance to experience a full day of hands-on activities and a glimpse into the world of cutting-edge research.
In small groups, we will investigate the structural and electrochemical properties of in-house grown carbon nanotubes networks! You will have a chance to get some experience with electrochemical techniques and have the opportunity to use some of our state-of-the-art atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) facilities.
We will also build some dye sensitised solar cells (DSSC). In this experiment, we will use raspberries to power a calculator! We will be able to measure the performance of your solar cell and realise how closely these processes are to photosynthesis.
We have been extremely grateful to have hosted LIYSF over the past 10 years and look forward to your visit again this year!
A three part-series A Glance at Women in STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is a rapidly advancing field and one that is essential to the future and survival of our society. However, not everyone is equally acknowledged or celebrated for their involvement. Historically, and still to this day, women are disproportionately represented in the STEM workforce. While the...

With STEM education poised to take over the future, we are here to discuss the various career possibilities that a future professional in STEM might be offered. Which Science Fiction Could Turn into Reality? Predicting the future is beyond our current scientific capabilities, as the future is always going to be uncertain. We hoped to see flying cars by 2020; we hoped to see hover boards. But non...
