The Sainsbury Laboratory values outreach events as a chance to highlight the importance of plant science research and to discuss the work of the Lab with a wide range of people. The Lab is also keen to inspire the next generation of plant scientists, with several outreach events a year targeting secondary school aged pupils or their teachers.  Organisations interested in collaborating on outreach projects should contact the outreach manager Elisabeth Burmeister.

Future outreach events:

The Sainsbury Laboratory is participating in the University of Cambridge Science Festival 2015. We will be in a marquee at the Downing Site on Saturday 14 March, as well as holding a talk on Tuesday 17 March in the SLCU auditorium.

The Sainsbury Laboratory is also participating in the Festival of Plants, which is held in the Botanic Garden on Saturday 16 May 2015. As part of the festival the laboratory will be holding a panel discussion on Friday 15 and a talk on Saturday 16 May.
