BCHC take parasites to the stage

At the end of May, BCHC members from the Hoffmann lab travelled to Cardiff to deliver interactive science games to children of all ages competing at one of Europe’s largest cultural youth festivals, the Urdd National Eisteddfod.

We took our custom made ‘plush parasites’ along with a series of interactive displays to highlight the different types of parasitic infections and encouraged members of the public to perform their own drug-discovery experiments. A great day was had by all.
