For your inspiration: Measure up

Almost every part of our modern world, be it healthcare, security, engineering or the development of new technologies, rely on one key thing: measurement. Join us for our next For Your Inspiration event in partnership with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to dive into this amazing topic, and uncover how scientists at NPL are using this knowledge to expand our knowledge of the world around us. This event is suggested for ages 13+.

Professor Graham Machin DSc, FREng is a Senior NPL Fellow in Thermometry – the measurement of temperature. He and his team made world-leading contributions to the redefinition of the kelvin (K), thermodynamic temperature measurement and novel approaches to reliable thermometry at high temperatures. He is currently working on realising the redefined kelvin and quantum thermometry. He and his team love solving temperature measurement puzzles in extreme environments like aviation and space!
