Activities And Events

Our Dynamic Sun

The Centre for Fusion, Space, and Astrophysics offers outreach activities centred around the wonders of our own Sun. We offer you the opportunity to view dynamic features of our Sun, such as sunspots and prominences, through our set of dedicated solar telescopes. You can try and create your own sunspot and find out just how big sunspots are, or you could learn about the dangers of the Sun's UV light while making your own UV bead wristbands. Members of our team are happy to talk to you about their research. For example, you could learn about flares and other explosives observed on the sun and find out the impact they have here on Earth.

We are happy to run activities based here at Warwick and visit local schools and will coordinate with you to suit your specific needs.
