#LOOminaries

Who inspires you? Who inspires other people?

Introducing the LOOminaries – People who inspire or influence others, made using a cardboard toilet roll tube.

Check out the gallery of LOOminaries below and the people who created them. If someone is missing, please join in! Take a photo and share it with us on Twitter or Instagram using #LOOminaries.

A project motivated by a shared love of science, creativity and public engagement by Professor Lorna Dougan & Dr Paul Beales, who gratefully acknowledge funding and support from STFC from the EPSRC
