Build your own universe: SEPnet

Fun is serious stuff for getting young people interested in science. SEPnet, a team of Physics outreach officers across seven universities, uses building blocks for hands-on exploration of particle Physics.

We’re very pleased indeed that we know how to build our own Universe – and even more excitingly, the end of the Universe – in LEGO. And now we’ve moved on to fission and fusion.

The original brief for SEPnet was to design a GCSE Physics booklet. But we went deeper than that to look at what the organisation was actually doing. These instruction booklets can sit alongside other SEPnet publications we’ve designed and build up a cohesive picture of its work at school and graduate level.
