The Driven to Diffraction Study Guide is a classroom resource that accompanies the watching of the film.
Driven to Diffraction tells the story of father and son physicists, William Henry Bragg and William Lawrence Bragg. Part human interest story and part science lesson, the documentary explores the discoveries and legacy of the Nobel Prize winning duo. Regarded as two of the most important scientists of the twentieth century, the Braggs’ development of X-Ray crystallography made possible an astonishing list of scientific advancements in DNA, cancer therapies, solid state electronics, modern pharmaceuticals and radio astronomy.
