Brainwaves

Image - Brainwaves logo

Brainwaves is organised and run by students, and is aimed at communicating science to schoolchildren (plus the odd adult!).

It runs an after-school club and contributes a science slot to Forge Radio, the University's radio station (thus bringing science to our non-scientific students!).

Brainwaves can be found at many events in and around Sheffield, and activities include extracting DNA from strawberries, running chromatography on sweets and making models of microbes. The group also organises entertaining science lectures.

Many of its members come from Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, and you can visit their website here: http://www.sciencebrainwaves.com/.
