The Science Exhibition at The Light House Media Centre in Wolverhampton called “The Average Human”, opens on the14th July and will remain open until the 29th August. The exhibition is the result of a collaborative work between The Light House and academics from Warwick funded by The Wellcome Trust. The exhibition includes research on sleep and diet from our group.
The exhibition is free and ideal for children and young adults as well as any other member of the lay public. It is a combination of different communication media, from interviews to films to cartoons and other creative ways of conveying complex science messages to a lay audience.
