The Royal Veterinary College was the recipient of one of The Society's 2013 Public Engagement Grants. The funding allowed the college to run their second RVC Lates, an evening event which invited the public behind the doors of their Camden campus. The night, which ran during Biology Week, let visitors try their hand at research techniques at a range of interactive stands, learn about the hearts of different species, diagnose cow pregnancy using Hapatic simulator, and witness a live dissection of a (dead) sheep.
Initiated in 2012, these nights aim to showcase the innovative scientific research which takes place at the college's Camden and Hawkshead sites. Their next event will be in April 2014.
Glasgow Science Centre: Bodyworks
Bodyworks is a new £2 million exhibition at Glasgow Science Centre (GSC) that opened in 2013. It's described as, “A unique and inspiring programme exploring the science underpinning health and wellbeing in the 21st century.”
The Society sponsors the My Physiology station within the exhibition and will be encouraging its members to take part in GSC's Meet The Scientists events.
