Colourful Pathology

Wednesday 28 June, Thursday 29 June - Bristol and Basingstoke respectively 

Ever thought about mixing science with art? Lizzie Burns, University of Oxford Scientist, now professional science-based artist, has a passion for making scientific ideas accessible and exciting to all children through the medium of art. The Royal College of Pathologists has commissioned Lizzie to run two workshops that will focus on how pathologists help prevent, diagnose and treat diseases – using art.

Why we need your help. Lizzie needs a pathologist to come with her on the day to be a representative for the field of pathology, to inspire the students about possible careers within the remit of pathology. No preparation is needed. All you need is to come along, answer any questions the children might have, and have some fun!

When are the activities?
