Thank you to all those who joined us for a series of events with staff across our newly formed Divisions of Natural Sciences (NATS) and Computing, Engineering and Maths (CEMS) showcasing our innovative research and outlining our visions for innovating for the future in the STEM subjects.
This year’s British Science Week – an annual ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths – took place between 5-14 March 2021. The theme for 2021 was “innovating for the future” and at Kent, we celebrated this with a series of events, looking at how the ground-breaking research being carried out at the University is shaping the future, but also asking our academics about their vision for the future.
We also showcased the work of our postgraduate students – the future of research – through short animated videos that they have created. These short clips will be entered into a competition where we will award three students for their innovation and communication skills, stay tuned to our blog for updates on this competition.
