Discovery Night is where the university opens its laboratories and lecture theatres to the public for an evening of science for the whole family. There were talks, exciting demonstrations and hands on activities from across science, engineering, medicine and dentistry. It was a fantastic event and a joy to photograph.
As a scientist by background myself it was especially great to photograph the kids interacting with the demos and lab equipment and getting inspired and wowed by science.
I also enjoyed the liquid nitrogen demo. I made some GIFs of a bunch of flowers being frozen solid in the liquid nitrogen and then being smashed. It's a demo I've seen many times before but it never gets old.
You can see some highlights from the night below, including the GIFs from the liquid nitrogen demo.
