The annual Tower Hamlets Festival of Communities returns, exploring living and learning.
The free festival, hosted by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and community groups across the borough, lets visitors take a hands-on approach to research through games, sports, crafts and other family friendly events.
“This year we have some excellent activities that link with our research in new and creative ways,” said Peter McOwan, vice-principal for public engagement and student enterprise.
Highlights include trekking over a tooth in virtual reality, an X-ray machine made of Lego and a life-size game of operation.
London’s Air Ambulance, St Joseph’s Hospice and Cancer Research UK are among the organisations showcasing projects with which visitors can get involved.
