Selection of Films on Bioenergy

This selection resulted from an extensive research in twenty electronic and non-electronic databases. The best films were selected in consultation with bioenergy specialists who based their judgment on the film’s length, academic quality and appropriateness for the general public. This work was done thanks to the support of the BBSRC through the call: Micro grants to fund bioenergy public engagement tools.[follow_me]


Bacteria Party

The Dragon’s Den, where young people sat on a panel where a number of scientists pitched their fun idea to the young people for an event they want to do. The young people (Dragons) chose and funded an idea, and spent the afternoon action-planning the event alongside the scientists.

“Bacteria party” was the winning idea, which was presented by the ‘B team’ from the School of Pharmacy at the University of Manchester. It includes cake and goodie bags alongside games, interactive exhibits and poster displays to celebrate the good and bad sides of bugs, germs and bacteria and how they affect our lives. The event inspired the local community to learn about science. Young people and scientists run the event together as part of the Manchester Science Festival’s community awards. This event was included in the Science week program organised by MOSI. [follow_me]
