CambPlants Hub

A networking organisation for plants-related research and impact

Studying at Cambridge


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!

Forest Ecology and Conservation Group, Department of Plant Sciences, with their famous special guest

The Plant and Life Sciences marquee will be again a part of the Science Festival in 2019, with exhibits and hands-on activities organised by research groups from the Department of Plant Sciences, Sainsbury Laboratory, Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, and NIAB. The marquee event will be open to public on the Downing Site on Saturday 16 March from 10am till 4pm.


I cannot be more grateful for having access to all this knowledge – Thank you so much!   ”
