Oxford Physics Family Christmas Lecture – Virus Factory!
When: Thursday 10th December, 6:00pm (GMT)
Where: Online – Zoom Webinar
What: We’ve all been hearing a lot about viruses over the past several months, but just how much do we understand about them? What exactly do viruses do once they get inside our cells? And why do we care? Join us for an exciting and interactive online lecture as we take a closer look at how viruses ‘hijack’ our cells and turn them into their own personal ‘virus factories’, and personally contribute to some cutting-edge scientific research in the process! Jam packed with interactive fun! Tell us what you think via live polling, create live word clouds with the whole audience, and look at some real scientific data to help us hunt and classify viruses.
Audience: Family friendly – ages 7+ yrs
Booking: Free event. Registration is required for this event; please register here. Zoom details for the event will be sent to registered attendees after registration has closed.
