Lots and lots of light bulbs

3:00pm on Saturday 3 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

In this interactive workshop we will talk about where the energy which powers our lights comes from, and why some light bulbs waste lots of energy.

We'll explain different materials used to make light bulbs and think about which ones waste least energy and why.

Finally, we'll help you make a special spinning toy, which will let you explore how energy is wasted in your home, with help from your grownup!

This event is presented by the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy
