ISIS opens its doors!
13 Jul 2015



The Harwell Open Day on Saturday 11 July 2015 saw around 15,000 people visiting the site, 4,300 of whom visited ISIS!

​​For scientists of all ages!

They were treated to a liquid nitrogen show, the chance to make slime, grow crystal gardens and build their favourite crystal structures out of sweets, as well as witnessing some electrostatics that literally made people’s hair stand on end!

Many thanks to members of our user community who helped out on the day. It was a great success, and there are now many more people with an understanding of the great science that we can do at ISIS – including one or two potential new users, and hopefully lots of potential scientists and engineers of the future who will have been inspired by what they saw.​
