Cambridge Science Festival

Hello all

I have been asked by my marketing manager, Dr Mark Booth, to bring your attention to an important event in the scientific calendar. All next week, the University of Cambridge is running a Science Festival. It's an annual event that attracts about 45000 people each year. Many departments take part in engaging the public with their scientific research. Dr Booth will be on hand to engage with whoever shows up at the Dept of Pathology on Tennis Court Rd from about 10am to about 3pm tomorrow (Saturday 17th). He'll have a specimens of parasites (in jars, of course), some pictures and video footage showing what parasites do to people, and of course copies of my book to sell. He has promised me that 50% of the cover price of each book sold on the day will go to the Matangini Project.

More details on the Science Festival are available here:



P.S. I would love to be there, but unfortunately have to remain at the Institute to entertain some overseas visitors.

How did it go?

bigger hugs - thanks for the hug

Susan - Dr Booth tells me it went well. Several children were convinced they were carrying worm infections - always a sign of success.
