Darren Carty, a second year student on the BSc Honours Biological Sciences (Molecular Biology and Genetics) was awarded a bursary to attend the British Science Festival through the Faculty Student Forum.

The Festival is run by the British Science Association and each September transforms a different UK city into a vibrant celebration of science, engineering and technology. This year's Festival took place in Birmingham, in partnership with the University of Birmingham, from 6 to 11 September 2014. The Festival featured a wide range of talks and workshops on subjects as varied as 'Training computers to understand music', 'Tattoos for time travellers' or 'Using mobile phones to diagnose Parkinson's'.

As well as attending the Festival Darren wrote a blog for the British Science Association website on the subject of carbon capture and climate change.
