Sheffield Festival of Science, April 2017.
In April 2017 CISTIB visited The Sheffield College and The Oak Tree High School as part of the Sheffield Festival of Science & Engineering. Students had the opportunity to listen to interesting talks about "Technologies That Will Transform Healthcare in the Next 10 Years" and to try out different hands-on demonstrations related to virtual reality in surgery and flow simulation in aneurysms.

Outreach is integral part of modern science, communicating what we do and why we do it to the community and the wider world. We are committed to this both here in Sheffield, and through links with institutes and groups around the world. We are proud to support the engagement of students both at schools and University level to raise the profile of science, technology and mathematics. If you wish to ask us a question or arrange us to visit you or an event, please contact us.
