Although scientists publish their work in academic journals or others to read, these can often be difficult to understand due to the type of language used. Join us for a session of blackout poetry, where participants can find meaning in a scientific text by selecting certain words and redacting the rest to create a literary and visual work of art. Our researchers will be on hand to show you what to do and discuss any of the source material, if needed.

This is a drop-in session, so feel free to arrive at any point between 3pm and 5pm to take part (the session ends at 5pm).
