Here, children and their parents or teachers can try the interactive ion source, accelerator, spallation target and storage ring, as well as look at various samples with neutron or X-ray eyes. They can read about neutron and X-ray science, and learn what the similarities and differences are between the two facilities. The exhibition marks the beginning of a collaborative outreach effort from ESS, MAX IV and Lund University, and it is a prelude to the exhibiton that will be built at the site.
The Science Centre LTH receives ~35 000 visitors/year, mostly school classes, and constitutes an important part of the science outreach from Lund University.
