Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials: Star light, star bright

Ever wondered what a star was made of? Join the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials to build your own star-scanning spectrometer, to peer inside the different colours that make up the lights in the night sky. You’ll also be able to make your own secret star, revealing a world of colour and complexity hidden in the light that surrounds you every day.

The Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials investigates materials and effects at the micro- to nano-scale, revealing how impossibly tiny structures can make a huge difference to the way that objects behave and how you experience them. Come and meet the next generation of nanomaterials scientists, as they lead you through a world that’s all around you but that you’ve never seen before.
