X-Appeal at the Royal Society?
The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014 website launched today! The Summer Science Exhibition is an annual display of the most exciting cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. Once again we will have the splendid fun of building our very own 'X-Appeal' exhibit, based upon the research being undertaken at the University of Manchester. Why not check-out the links above and see what we will be up to this year....we even have a short video introducing you to our research. The centrepiece of the X-Appeal Exhibit will be a 7.3 metre long predatory dinosaur, Gorgosaurus, surrounded by a series of experiments exploring how to use the electromagnetic spectrum to image, analyse and investigate this dinosaur’s past. The week-long science festival features 22 exhibits from the forefront of British innovation. You can meet the scientists behind cutting edge science and technology exploring everything from antibiotics to x-rays. With hands-on experiments, panel discussions and family activities throughout the week, there’s something for everyone.
