The Seeing Light Through a New Light outreach program has currently reached approximately 25,000 people across the UK Scotland. The aim of the program is to enthuse and excite the public about light and its use in medical and biological applications. Interactive shows, lectures and workshops are delivered throughout Fife, Scotland and the UK to school, family and adult audiences to show how light is changing our life. If you would like to book/request an event or activity or would like more information about the project please contact Kishan Dholakia (email@example.com).
The research and outreach project are funded by a number of sources, including the Engineering and Physics Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), a Partnership for Public Engagement (PPE) Award, Cancer Research UK, the European Union Framework 7 programme and the Royal Society.
