British Science Festival

 

Liv Nathan and Maggie Aderin-PockockThe British Science Festival, the largest annual public science festival in Europe, took place from the 4th – 9th September and was hosted by the University of Aberdeen. This year over 250 activities took place over the week. Event presenters included Brian Cox, Bill Bryson and Susan Greenfield.

Our bursary winners were Liv Nathan, a third year veterinary student at Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies and Allie Mahdmina, a second year veterinary student at Royal Veterinary College.

Liv Nathan said “I am very enthusiastic about providing real-life context to science and giving people a space to consider issues arising around science.”

The students were required to use their observations and experiences to help the Trust develop future outreach activities to inform and inspire public audiences about veterinary clinical practice and research.
