British Science Week celebrations continueThursday 17 March 2016
British Science Week visitors have explored the inner workings of the brain, the art of healthy eating, and the science behind consciousness and cognitive processes, as part of the University’s week-long celebrations at Hope Park.
Staff, students, school children and members of the public were also treated to a falconry display featuring a golden eagle, barn owl and other birds of prey.
Still to come before the week is out are a series of research talks exploring Nutrition, Sport and Bioscience, as well a Taste Testing Analysis session, insight into the science behind athletes, and an exploration of volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. An Animal Encounters event and Family Bat Night round off the celebrations on Friday 18th March.
All events are free. View full listings and book your place here: http://www.hope.ac.uk/britishscienceweek
