The event was sponsored by Nature Communications and Nature and was attended by 240 year 7 and 8 students. During the day students were able to listen to talks that discussed the chemistry of how light is made, the importance of light in the development of modern humans and how light is generated and used by animals. A series of hands-on activities were also run during the day by scientists, engineers and archaeologists from across UCL.
