Art of Science 2 – public engagement

On Friday 24th July we had the “meet the scientist” portion of the IACD imaging competition. In addition to the art display, we set up a light microscope with a bunch of cool/pretty/interesting histology slides from our research and had a monitor hooked up with a slide show of videos and other still from the institute. With it manned in rotation by IACD staff and students

It was really effective, lots of members of the public stopped and chatted, admiring the “art” and finding out more about the science behind it. Below are some pics of Lee, Brian, Rachel, Steph and Valentina giving their spiel. We also got a 130 more paper votes for the favourite.

All in all a fun and
