Outreach activities

algae.jpgAs a group we regularly exhibit on both 'Vitamins' and 'Algae' at Science on Saturday in Cambridge.

In June 2010 we had an exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall in London, entitled 'Meet the Algae'. The stand, which included displays of different algae, hands-on analysis of photosynthetic pigments, and demonstrations of a device where algae are used to generate electricity, enabled us to reach a wide audience from all ages and interests, and to introduce them to different groups of algae, showing them how they move in their environment, and how algae can harness sunlight to produce hydrogen, electricity or other forms of green energy.

Many of the features of the exhibit are available as a Teaching resource for 14-16 year olds.
