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 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!
STEM education in the UK has grown in recent years as a curriculum that aims to skill students by presenting a cohesive learning platform that is largely based on real-world applications. It underpins the foundational stage of many sectors, ranging from healthcare to aviation and much more and is often integral to an organisation and thus is becoming an ever-more important field for students. Wh...

Representation in science is imperative for creating solutions that are reflective of the diversity within communities. Young people represent a generation of innovative thinkers, whose voices add value to the global science community, however, are unfortunately not always heard. “There’s a fallacy that because science is objective, it’s completely devoid of our input and the reality is, ...

Scientific visits are an important part of the LIYSF experience. They allow participants to gain exposure to science through exposure to world class scientific institutions, as well as insights from scientists from across the STEM field. Participants were offered three opportunities to engage in scientific visits across three days. These visits were spread across London, the greater England a...
