Public Engagement Overview

Cambridge Science Festival

We take part in the Cambridge Science Festival, organised every March by the University of Cambridge Public Engagement team in collaboration with volunteers from across Cambridge.

Our 2017 Science Festival booklet is called "How does your heart work?" and can be downloaded here. It was completely re-designed by Dr Ana-Mishel Spiroski based on the 2016 booklet that was designed by Dr Aarti Shah.
