The group is involved with various outreach activities. In 2010, we contributed to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition. Other activities include making movies to communicate our research and explain science, and this year we even developed an iPhone game which aims to illustrate the formation of ice crystals.
Below you can see several things: information about our stand at the Exhibition, as well as photos, and links to various movies made by the group.
Slideshow from the exhibition
Although the Exhibition is over, you can still see our videos, vote for your favourite "Water Girl" in our online poll, and download our "Waterfall" iPod Game (note that the competitions associated with this that we ran during the Exhibition are now closed).
Please enjoy a selection of photographs from the event!

A molecule's eye view of water
Royal Society Summer
|George's supercooled water lecture|
The ice caps are melting, you have to rebuild them one water molecule at a time! Waterfall is a simple, fun, and highly addictive game that teaches you about ice and nanoscience.
Get the game now and practice before coming to the Exhibition and competing against the world's best Waterfall players for lots of exiting prizes...
After a painstaking process of digital restoration, George's first lecture from 24 March 1970 is now available:

Stay tuned for the next informative and entertaining installment "fresh" from the archives!
The scientists couldn't decide what to make Watergirl look like. We need your help - vote now for the best Watergirl!
