Come and see us at The British Science Festival Family Weekend 2016!

The Proteus team will be enthusiastically sharing their science at The British Science Festival Family Weekend 2016, so come along and join in!

The British Science Festival Family Weekend will be held in Swansea and hosted by Swansea University on 10 & 11 September 2016. It will celebrate science in its broadest context and shine a light on the region’s innovation, culture and heritage. The events and activities will take place in the heart of the City of Swansea.

The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest-standing national event which connects people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists. Tens of thousands of people come together to celebrate the latest developments in science and to engage in open discussion about issues that affect our culture and society.

The mission of Proteus to “Light up the lungs to detect disease” will form a key part of the weekend’s activities. We will invite visitors to step inside our critical care ward and help Proteus doctors make very important decisions about their patient’s health.

Visitors will use our brilliant optical fibres to look deep into the patient’s lungs and find the bugs causing illness, then help the team choose the correct medicine to get our patient back on his feet again.
