Synopsis

Technology can be used to create some amazing demonstrations, and these can often be used to describe complex scientific processes. Using commodity technologies such as Lego and Raspberry Pis to conduct such demonstrations can help to demystify these complex processes. In this talk, Mark will show some examples of systems he has used at the Diamond Light Source and the Rosalind Franklin Institute.
