CEB Science Colouring Book @ Science Festival 2017


As you may be aware, following on last year’s success, CEB will be taking part in the Cambridge Science Festival again this year. This festival is aimed at giving the public the opportunity to explore Cambridge Science. The annual two-week celebration of science draws many families who bring their kids along to the event to find out about what Cambridge research is about.

We are therefore calling for photo entries to be submitted that inspire the contents of both the colouring book we are preparing ( in addition so some of your great drawings) and general look of our Science festival booth. We believe that your photos will showcase the fantastic science behind our key research activities, especially those tied up closely to this year’s Science Festival theme is "Getting Personal".

Who can enter?

The competition is open to researchers, undergrad and postgrad students in the Department.


The image, with a relevant caption, must be submitted by email to by 

Friday 3 February, 5 pm

The entrant must include the following statement in the text of the email:

I have checked with my manager/supervisor/DoS __________________ that I have permission to enter the attached photograph(s) in the competition and give the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology the right to publish the photograph(s) on its website and elsewhere.


For printing the image should be at least 2500 pixels wide or high.

Image content:

The photos need to be scientific and depict the science behind your projects and experiments - being high resolution images of molecules, cells, bacteria, spores, etc… Those entries closely related to the topic/theme will certainly be favoured. Do think of scientific shapes and elements kids could find appealing and they’d fins easy and fun to colour them in.

Submission requirements:

Participants need to be the copyright owners of the images in question, these need to be ideally of 300 dpi quality, each image submission must include a relevant caption explaining what the photo represents.


1st prize winner will get £100 Amazon voucher, 2nd £50 and 3rd £25 respectively.
