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 2016. We will be in a marquee at the Downing Site on Saturday 12 March.

The Sainsbury Laboratory is also participating in the Festival of Plants, which is held in the Botanic Garden in May 2016.
