FunLab at the Big Weekend

On Saturday 8 July, the University of Cambridge presented the annual Fun Lab, a space where everyone can get seriously hands-on with science, during the Big Weekend on Parker’s Piece. 

Hosted by the University’s Public Engagement team, this year’s events included discovering why bees are stripey, finding out about superheroes, making paper flowers, creating future fossils and constructing your very own brain hat! 

Departments, Institutes and Museums from across the University of Cambridge joined together with other partner organisations to offer free hands-on activities for all ages throughout the day.

Organiser, Sue Long said: “Every year, we welcome hundreds of people into the Fun Lab. It’s such a delight to see everyone, young and old, having a go at the many activities. We very much look forward to welcoming people again this year, it’s always as much fun for us as it is for our visitors!
