Scientific inspiration

I was quite young when my father first told me about the double slit experiment. When he explained it, it seemed like real-world magic to me. I’m still amazed that science has uncovered so much yet there's always a new mystery out there to be solved. Which is pretty cool when you come to think about it.

Favourite demo

It has to be the Levitating Pumpkin. A pumpkin. That levitates. What’s not to love!

Best thing about the Ri

The excitement and enthusiasm that permeates everything here. Great people, amazing science, and a building steeped in history.
