Join us at the University of Leeds for a day of free scientific activities aimed at families. The Bragg Centenary event celebrates a scientific technique that changed the world and gained its inventors a Nobel Prize; the science of X-ray crystallography. Take part in our interactive workshops and discover how to extract DNA from a strawberry and how to make diffraction patterns using a torch and a net curtain! There will also be a series of lectures exploring how X-ray crystallography helped changed the world. The activities are aimed at ages eight and above and the lectures are recommended for over 14s. The Bragg Centenary celebration is part of the Leeds Festival of Science. The free event takes place at the Parkinson Building, University of Leeds on Saturday, March 23, 2013. The fun begins at 10am. Free parking is available on the campus.
