Cambridge Science Festival

Have you ever wondered how scientists study cells when they’re too small to see and physically dissect? Find out how at a collaborative exhibit between the University of Cambridge’s Departments of Genetics and Pharmacology and the Linnean Society of London. Join us to see fluorescence and genetic engineering in action through glow-in-the-dark organisms, take on the role of a scientist and prepare your own microscope slides, and even channel your inner van Gogh and produce some fluorescent artwork to take home!
