PE opportunities: Would you like to volunteer for Cambridge Neuroscience during the Cambridge Science Festival?
Get some valuable public engagement experience by volunteering with Cambridge Neuroscience at some great events during Brain Awareness Week at this year's Cambridge Science Festival.
Volunteer with CamBRAIN at Build a (Cam)BRAIN
Come along and join CamBRAIN on March 18th from 10:00-16:00 at the Guildhall in Central Cambridge.
In this drop in workshop, visitors will see some real neurons through a microscope using a mobile phone, have the opportunity to speak with a real neuroscientist (You!) and learn all about the most fascinating organ in the body. They will even have the opportunity to create their own colourful neuron masterpiece and get their face painted.
