175th Anniversary news: Westminster Science Festival was held on 14 and 15 March

27 March 2013

The first ever Westminster Science Festival was hosted by the Cavendish School Student Association (SSA) at the Cavendish Campus on 14 and 15 March, as part of the University’s 175th anniversary celebrations.

The event kicked off with a ‘Stand up for Science’ comedy night on Thursday. The festival showcased the research that takes place at the campus, as well as giving students the opportunity to have their CVs checked and help them with their career planning at the ‘opportunity fair’.

There was hands-on science and a Red Nose Day cake sale - all creating a wonderful atmosphere at Cavendish.

The festival might now become a regular event. To find out more, please contact Miriam Hanna at [email protected]
