A hands-on Science and Technology masterclass for students aged 13-15, taking place in the school holidays at Anglia Ruskin University.

Please register through Eventbrite. We ask for a contribution of £14 towards the cost of running this event.

Do you imagine how science and medicine could improve the way your body works? Can you imagine how understanding the natural world helps us improve our aircraft, or whether plastics are a good or bad thing? Could you imagine how virtual reality may affect our future lives?

If the answer is YES to any of the above, and you are aged 13-15, then Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) invites you to Imagine!

A comprehensive look at our skeleton, muscles, joints and nerves and how these come together to enable our bodies to move. What can go wrong in and with our body? What can be done with technology and engineering to help? We will look at examples including assistive aids, artificial limbs, intelligent prosthetics, cyborgs and exoskeletons. The session will also cover how we can directly use electrical signals to control muscles and help manage pain via neurostimulators and implanted devices. There will be a demonstration on hand muscle control.

This masterclass is suited to science, technology and engineering students aged 13-15 interested in areas of medical science, technology and robotics.

Please register through Eventbrite. We ask for a contribution of £14 towards the cost of running this event.
