Discover the ChemEng and Biotech Department!

Saturday 23 March: 11:00am - 2:00pm

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Philippa Fawcett Drive, CB3 0AS

Join Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology researchers and students and discover how they take science from fundamentals to application, and how long the journey is from idea to discovery.

Learn about the microbiome and gut-brain connection, explore neurons and use high resolution microscopy to image the smallest parts of the cells. Explore the world of biomarkers, and see what happens to materials at the nanoscale.

Get to know our researchers through Speed Sci-Dating and our panel discussion on accidental discoveries and the generation of new ideas. Join us for our Science and Science Fiction talk to see how fiction has inspired science and which ideas have already been turned into products and concepts.

And when you had enough of learning, have fun building your own sensor, making sweets, producing green energy, mixing up molecules and taking part in our ChemEngBiotech Treasure Hunt.
