Discover Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB)!

Join Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology graduates and researchers  to discover how they take science from the fundamentals to application, following the exciting journey from ideas to discoveries.

There will be hands-on activities for families with children to get involved in, including drawing and painting, interactive and fun workshops and mini-talks to attend:
  • Come and see Energy producing bacteria, check the quality of your drinks using NMR, learn how computers are transforming the way we think about chemistry, learn how sensors are design and if you always wanted to do some chemical experiments: we have some for you to try. 
  • Chat to our selected team of researchers during Science Speed Dating and learn about the Molecules that Changed the World. 
  • If you really just want to play, join “Explore the Gut Microbioma” workshop or do some colouring while sipping coffee and eating cake in our social area, the Atrium. 
  • Get to be a scientist and engineer for the day whilst learning about CEB discoveries: cool molecules, reactions, structures, sensors, bacteria... CEB is your oyster!
