The Diamond CDT team brings together students and academics from across the UK to showcase the wonders of diamond science and technology in a variety of different scientific applications. We are engage in wide ranging outreach activities from visiting schools to taking part in national events such as the Royal Society Summer Exhibition, Royal Institute Science Days, UK Science Festivals.
Through our outreach events we hope to inspire more people to become interested in science and nurture the fascination in the younger generation with the hope that one day they may wish to pursue a career in the sciences.
If you would like the team to visit your school or exhibit with you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please follow us on twitter @DiamondCDT if you would like to hear about our future outreach activities.
