We have three events during the upcoming Science Festival in March 2018 and we're looking for volunteers to help out!

Sign up here!


17 Mar 2018 - Be a Biomaker: DIY sensing 
Hands-on activities with DIY sensors in the Plant Sciences Marquee on Downing Site.

25 Mar 2018 - Meet the Biomakers (12:00-16:00 in the Biomakespace)
RSVP (booking opens 12 Feb 2018)
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)
RSVP (booking opens 12 Feb 2018)
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!
