We are still looking for volunteers for any of the following Science Festival events! It’s great fun and you’ll get to sport a nice yellow T-shirt. All welcome, you’ll be fully briefed so even if you haven’t been involved before, don’t let that put you off!
The events are:
17 Mar 2018 - Be a Biomaker: DIY sensing (09:00-17:00 at the Downing Site)
Exhibit explainers wanted!
We’ll exhibit some Arduinos and open hardware devices for science, plus there’ll be some electrophysiological fun for all the family!
25 Mar 2018 - Meet the Biomakers (12:00-16:00 in the Biomakespace)
Tour guides and exhibit explainers wanted!
Biomakespace is a new community laboratory for Cambridge, enabling people with a curiosity for engineering with biology to collaborate and learn together. Biomakespace members will run tours of the space and introduce their projects on the hour (first tour at 12:00 and last at 15:00). Whether you’re interested in building sensors with DNA, printing cells, building microscopes or more, get inspired with the biomakers.
25 Mar 2018 - Extreme Citizen Sensing (16:00-17:00 in the Postdoc Centre @ Biomedical Campus).
Citizen or community science is growing around the world as people seek to learn more about their environment and change it for the better. In this series of short talks and exhibits, we’ll explore DIY sensors for everything from oil spills to air pollution and radiation. We’ll hear from the developers, researchers and people who are making use of extreme citizen sensing and get hands-on with some devices!
