      Hi geekmeg,

      Every year the university holds a science fair in Durham where members of the public can come and watch fun science demonstrations and talk to the scientists about their research.

      I’d love to get involved, and with the prize money I could buy some materials for a science experiment to do, or maybe a model to demonstrate how proteins are made.

      Lots of departments from the university get involved (such as chemistry, physics, medicine, earth sciences etc) so it’s a really fun event.
