Over the weekend 4-5 November 2017, the Proteus team will be attending the first Scottish Festival of Physics to discuss all of the different aspects of research happening within the group, and explaining how that research will be turned into tools for the Circuits! project.

The Festival of Physics is a brand new science festival for the UK, created as a collaboration between the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Physics in Scotland. On 4-5 November 2017, the wider public can take part in a plethora of activities that highlight the role that physics plays in our lives. There will be a focus on how scientific research crosses over into many disciplines, and a celebration of Scottish physicists who have played a part in developing world-changing inventions and making groundbreaking discoveries.

Saturday 4th November: 10am – 5pm

Our Public Engagement Strategist, Dr Helen. Szoor-McElhinney, will be engaging with people from across the city at this family-friendly event. We will show Proteus technology and let visitors use the bronchoscope to go looking for bugs in the lung. There will be a special demonstration on how bioengineering can help diagnose malaria. We will explain how this research will be turned into exciting teaching tools for schools across Scotland.

Sunday 5th November: 10am – 5pm
Our Circuits! colleague, Dr Melanie Jimenez (University of Glasgow) will take to the platform and use both demos to continue the exciting engagement around our research.

We hope to see you there!
