Bragg Centenary Celebrations at Leeds – first event 23 March 2013

We at the Leeds University Museum for the History of Science Technology and Medicine/ HPS Museum Leeds are proud to announce the first day of events in our year-long celebration of the work of father and son team, William Henry and William Lawrence Bragg.

As part of the Leeds Festival of Science why not join us at the University of Leeds for a day of stimulating events to explore the history of the technique that first helped us to answer questions like ‘why is grass green?’: X-ray crystallography.
Uncover the achievements of William Henry Bragg, Professor of Physics at the University of Leeds in 1913; and his son William Lawrence, who first pioneered the technique and changed the world.

Informative lectures (recommended for ages 14+), interactive workshops (recommended for ages 8+), and exhibits are just some of the activities on offer.
