Linguistic Diversity Collective and Creative Manchester
Come and learn about the origins of scientific vocabulary and where the terms we use for chemicals in the body come from. You will hear a short talk filled with examples from ongoing research at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology before collaborating on an activity to explore some more well-known names with the help of biochemists and linguists from The University of Manchester.
This session is suitable for the general public (approximately from secondary school age and above), particularly those interested in molecules, life sciences or the meanings and histories of words.
Presented by the Linguistic Diversity Collective in partnership with Creative Manchester.
