Cambridge Science Festival

Every year, scientists from across all the biological sciences, including CambPlants and members of our network take part in the University of Cambridge Science Festival by showcasing their research at the Plant and Life Sciences Marquee.

This year, the Plant and Life Sciences Marquee took the visitors on a journey through their senses and showed them the sensorial side of research. Here's a full description of what went on at the Marquee on Saturday 17 March 2018, despite the cold weather!
