Proteus Science Explained Through Ceilidh Dancing!



“It’s so exciting being part of the science ceilidh, I can tell the story of the PROTEUS project through fast and furious ceilidh dancing, it’s going to be great!”

– Sam Stanfield, PhD Student


As part of the Scottish International Year of Light celebrations, the School of Chemistry will be hosting a special ceilidh on the 5th of December at the Southside Community Centre, Edinburgh, where all the dances will have a twist of the science of light!  From Dashing White Light Wave to Flying Photon to Smart Probe Reels, each dance will be based on the chemistry, physics, maths and biology of light!
