ARREST TB at Explorathon

ARREST TB members, led by Dr Helen Bridle will be hosting an event for Explorathon 2019 at the Lyell Centre on the Heriot-Watt University campus on the 28th of September 2019. The event is free but attendees are encouraged to book tickets in advance for one of our exciting 30 minute games, where children will be encourage to see if they can outrun a tuberculosis infection, what medicine is needed to beat the bugs and why it is important to take all your medicine so that the bugs can continue to be beaten. Further details about this event and other events on the Heriot-Watt campus can be found here.

Explorathon is part of the European Researchers Night, an annual event funded by the European Union that is dedicated to bringing science closer to the public. Events will be organised throughout Europe between the 26th to the 28th of September 2019 to showcase the impact of research on our daily lives and inspire young people to embark on careers in science, technology, engineering and maths.
