This year has been a very busy year for our outreach activities, presenting our Quantum Light exhibit at Discovery Night, the Exploring STEM for Girls event and returning to the Cheltenham Science Festival. Between these three events we have encouraged thousands of people to explore the exciting world of quantum light and hopefully inspired a number of them to become the next generation of quantum researchers. We were also thrilled to discover that so many attendees shared our excitement about quantum physics, we look forward to meeting many more of you at our future events.
