Cambridge Science Festival 2017 at the CBU

An entertaining and educational evening of demonstrations and lectures will be held at the CBU on Wednesday 15th March, from 6-8.30pm. Our annual science open evening, this year titled “Exploring the Mind and Brain – Improving cognition and mental health” is given as part of the Cambridge Science Festival and features lectures from three of our leading scientists highlighting our varied research, plus the chance to take part in some of our experiments exploring how the mind and brain work, with time to meet the scientists and students doing the research. Hands-on activities are run for the first hour, followed by three short talks. The programme can be found below and a PDF poster for the event can be seen here.
