Come Get Felt Up Vs Super/Collider Science Craft Session

We have teamed up with Super/Collider, Come Get Felt Up and Bright Star Catalogue to create an afternoon of music and science-inspired arts & crafts. Come listen to the latest breakthroughs in Biology while competing for prizes in a messy, hands-on, all-out craft competition.

5pm – Chris Binny’s day job is researching viral gene therapy at UCL, but he also works on a more hands-on project called DIYBio. This growing community is applying the hacker ethos to biology, taking it out of the lab and into amateurs’ kitchens and workshops where they make new organisms, explore their own genomes and create living art.

6pm – Jay Stone is a final year PhD student at the Institute of Ophthalmology working on the biology of eyes. She’ll be popping along to tell us exactly how how our peepers work, why they can sometimes deceive us and what happens when our sight goes wrong.
