Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Public lecture/debate/seminar


Hosted the ‘Mighty Mitochondria – Powerhouses of the Cell’ activity during the IGMM Doors Open Day 2018.
I invited the visitors to discover how our cells make the energy we need to live. This activity was inspired by a pin ball machine, where I instructed visitors to follow the route of ping pong balls through a 3D model of the mitochondrial energy generation process.
