Summer 2017 events

The DCN Lab organised a number of Public Engagement events in summer 2017. We were excited to participate in the Lancashire Science Festival for a second year.  Thanks to all the schools, families and general public for visiting our DCN Lab exhibit. We were also excited this summer to welcome Lyntham Sixth Form College in the DCN Lab at the School of Psychology for a day of research games and activities.
