LMB scientists regularly take part in science festivals, sharing our discoveries and providing opportunities for all to talk to researchers and learn more about LMB research and scientific careers.
Cambridge Science Festival
In March every year, the Cambridge Science Festival gives the public the opportunity to explore Cambridge Science. LMB scientists get involved each year, giving talks about their research or running activities such as the ‘Crystal Clear’ exhibit showcasing the Crystal Growing competition or ‘See Your Cells’ hands-on microscope activity in the Biology Zone.
