New series on superbugs, stem cells and more open to the public at University of Warwick’s showcase of science
'Science on the Hill' is a new programme of public engagement events jointly hosted by the University’s School of Life Sciences and the Wellcome-Warwick Quantiative Biomedicine Programme at Warwick Medical School. These interactive two hour events taking place across the academic year will feature 20 researchers giving a birds-eye view of the latest exciting developments in their discipline.
Five free public events that will showcase the cutting-edge research being performed at the Gibbet Hill campus into the building blocks of life, futures in medicine and the factors that define our health are scheduled up to July 2020.
The 2018 Women’s Cycle Tour will again pass through the University of Warwick campus on Friday 15 June. The cyclists will approach campus from Westwood Heath Road, travel up Gibbet Hill Road and head out on to Kenilworth Road in the morning.
This year, the route for stage 3 will start in Atherstone and end in Leamington Spa. We expect the race to come through campus between 10.30 - 11.00am on Friday 15 June. Warwickshire County Council have provided estimated route timings on their website.

Following the city’s winning bid to become UK City of Culture, Coventry schoolchildren are taking part in a new competition to bring the idea of cultural exchange and shared heritage to life. The Two Chairs Creative Writing competition, which is open to all across the UK invites people to see the world from the ‘other’ perspective.
Inspired by the Hafez-Goethe Monument of two empty chairs, the competition was started by Dr James Hodkinson of the University of Warwick and asks entrants to write and submit pieces in English or German, whether they be poems, short stories or prose, that express what the chairs say to them.
Prizes of £250 will be awarded to the winners of the Under 18 and Over 18 categories in both English in German.
Setting crisps on fire, making spinach glow, and detonating hundreds of ping pong balls were just some of the experiments the children attending Warwick’s Christmas lectures were treated to this year.
Mind boggling optical illusions, giant glow sticks, drill-powered umbrellas, and hundreds of bubbles also featured in the interactive shows.
The University of Warwick is hosting a photography exhibition which challenges preconceptions of Down Syndrome.
The exhibition features dozens of children aged from a few weeks to 12 years old who have the condition. The photographs show children dressing up in their favourite clothes - or doing some of their favourite things and aims to emphasise the uniqueness of each child and encourage viewers to see past the diagnosis and see each child’s individual skills and interests.
The exhibition which is being held at the University on Tuesday 5 December has been organised by Warwickshire charity The Ups of Downs and the University’s Warwick Medical School.
Join a Neverending CanCan, make a bin burp, scream to control a scooter and warm up while you talk as the Open Citizens project from Coventry City of Culture takes over the city 16-22 October.
