Gender Development Research Centre

 

The GDRC team will be hosting a hands-on workshop at this year's Science Festival for children and adults alike

The programme for the annual University Science Festival has been released, and the Gender Development Research Centre are proud to be hosting a workshop on Saturday March 18th as part of the Department of Psychology's open day.

This is a chance to find out more about the work that is done within the centre - there will be researchers and PhD students on hand chatting about their work, plus an interactive task for children involving a video with fruit, toys and musical instruments ... 

The event is called 'Like apples to oranges: not quite' and is running in the Psychology building, Downing Site, from 10am to 4pm. It is featured on p48 of the programme - the full document can be found here.

Check out the other talks, workshops and exhibitions on offer at the festival, and hope to see you there!
