Event Details

Covered with 12,000 photomultiplier tubes the Super Kamiokande neutrino observatory in Japan is the ultimate meeting of science and craft. A photomultiplier tube is an extremely sensitive converter of light to electricity (the opposite of a light bulb!).

In this workshop you will get the chance to make your own photomultiplier tube to capture the invisible in your own bedroom!
