24. Do you have any other comments you would like to make or information you would like to include?:
I'm an active participant in Northumbria's amateur dramatics societies and have associations with the university's Writers' Society. A number of local individuals involved in performance art (as well as the PhD students mentioned previously) have expressed an interest in providing input or aid in putting together this event - I feel they would greatly help to make it a success. In particular, I feel they'd be of great assistance in helping to make it fun and accessible for all ages.
As for myself: I am also presently a PhD student in the area of biotechnology/biochemistry, with an interest in performance art and science communication. I feel really passionate about making science fun, accessible and understandable - and I also love the microbes I work with, too!
