 This year the National History Museum in London is hosting the June  week of fun – Universities Week.

The week-long series of events are due to take place in the Darwin Centre, at the Natural History Museum in central London. Not just for students, events are open to anyone with a desire to keep learning.


Research teams from across the UK-spectrum of universities are gathering here to promote the work that they are doing and explain to the public how some of these projects may impact people’s daily lives.

There are five groupings of research demonstrations: Science and Technology, Health and Wellbeing, Environment and Sustainability, Culture, Society, along with an Attenborough Studio and a Pop-Up Performance.

Fun and unusual demonstrations include - University of Reading: Bees, Berries and Bacteria – The incredible story of a fruit smoothie – which even includes Daisy the milkable cow, and the chance to pedal your way to making a drinkable smoothie!

You can find more interesting exhibits on the agenda here.

Running since 2010, the campaign is supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, Research Councils UK, the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement and the University Museums Group

You can email for further info about the project.

Universities Week events run from 9-13 June, 2014.
