Research Alley

Saturday, December 2, 2023, 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Quadrangle internal lawns (A14)

Explore the wonderful research at the University and get hands-on with some fascinating examples of research and teaching practices.  

Housed in the historic cloisters in the Quadrangle, have your ice-block frozen using liquid nitrogen, learn how to build a lie detector, or test your veterinary science skills on realistic clinical skills models. 
There will also be examples of high-fidelity teaching models used for training our next generation of doctors and nurses. Try some honey from the BEE lab (the Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution Lab) and see how Digital Interactive Environments, such as Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies, can be used to evaluate the cultural significance of construction documentation and processes related to historically important buildings.
Create a digital twin for a collaborative robot and interact with the robot to perform simple actions like writing your name with a brush. Meet the team from the Net Zero Initiative, paving the way for the adoption of low-carbon emission technologies, or sign up to become a Citizen Scientist and contribute to a research project!
