How do you confine a Sun to a box?
Jack Haley (Fusion CDT student based at Oxford) worked with animators to create a short film called ‘Materials for nuclear fusion: how do you confine a sun to a box?’. Jack acted as the guide for the drafting of the scripts and storyboards and worked with the animators until the final product was complete.
This project received funding from Oxford Sparks.Link to Jack's video on YouTube
Using binding blocks to explain fusion energy
Hannah Willett recently finished her fourth year as a Fusion CDT student based at York. Whilst undertaking her PhD Hannah got involved with the ‘Binding Blocks’ outreach project and presented this video which uses the Binding Blocks chart to explain the process of nuclear fusion and how creating “mini-suns” on earth could be an important clean energy source for the future.Watch Hannah using binding blocks to explain fusion energy
