Take a virtual tour from sea bed to outer space

Take a virtual tour from the sea bed to outer space

Travel 1,000 feet under the sea with TV’s Greg Foot; make art inspired by the placenta and create science heroes from a humble toilet roll.

All these events and more are part of Be Curious, a family friendly programme of events giving questioning minds an insight into the research that goes on at the University.

Launching on Saturday October 10 and running until Friday 23 October, this year events are taking place online so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your sofa.

Be Curious invites children and adults alike to take part in a range of activities, including learning how to decode protein messages hidden in DNA; competitions; virtual campus tree trail where you can explore the university’s 1,450 trees; a talk about climate change and what you can do to fight it, and how Leeds’ researchers are helping to bring about a carbon neutral future.

All events are free but some require registration. Click on the links below to sign up.
