Saturday 17th March (Drop in anytime 12-4pm)

Join us for our popular interactive family afternoon as part of Science Week @ Sheffield Hallam. Students and staff from Sheffield Hallam University will host an exhibition showcasing research in biology, chemistry, forensic science, engineering and health. There will be plenty to capture the imagination of all ages from hands-on activities to mini talks and demonstrations, crafts and competitions. Find out about the brain and conditions such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, how venom from animals can be used to develop therapeutic agents, the detection of ‘fake’ money with forensic science as well as all of our exciting engineering and robotics work. New for this year, throughout the day we will also be giving mini talks and demonstrations in the Pennine lecture theatre which will be fun and accessible for all ages.
