2015 Edinburgh International Science Festival

Donald led a group of eleven staff and students from the University of Edinburgh / MRC Centre for Inflammation Research (CIR) in running a “sell out” series of “Amazing Immunology” workshops at the Edinburgh International Science Festival from 14th – 18th April 2015.

The workshops took groups of up to 24 children through a set of fun activities to learn about immunity, infections, allergies and vaccinations. These activities were developed within the CIR for children aged ~6 – 11 years old, with funding from the British Society for Immunology, and the Wellcome Trust (via a CMVM ISSF2 grant awarded to Donald) and featured the “Denny and the T-team” animation, puppet show and 3D puzzle hunt, the “Rash Decisions” ball pool challenge and “Immunological Stickers” activity.

The event was a great success and Donald would like to thank all those involved.
