Despite welcome changes in the way we think about women’s health and wellbeing, nevertheless, in a recent STUC survey, 32% of respondents said that menopause was treated negatively in their workplace and 63% reported that it was treated as a joke. This can’t be good for women experiencing menopause, for girls and young women looking ahead to menopause, or for supportive colleagues and family members of all ages and genders. Inspired by (but not a part of) the Menopause Café movement the Invisible Women event is an open invitation to talk, listen and learn about menopause.

Synthetic Biology is a branch of biology which takes biotechnology and applies engineering principles and social sciences to provide ethical, forward thinking solutions to problems.
One of the major areas is in biosensor development: cells have the ability to detect minute amounts of elements (such as arsenic) in the environment, and these can be modified to produce a detectable output like colour or light in their presence.
This event has two parts: Part  involves a creative challenge that requests the participants to find sustainable solutions in order to power a village in a developing region on Day 1 and Part  is a visit to the Pitlochry Dam & Hydroelectric Power Station where participants will learn about the environmental precautions taken for the Atlantic Salmon species and others to enable the green power generation in the Highlands.

You’ll spend the afternoon setting up your own blog, customising it, maintaining it and learning about how to blog. At the end of the session, you’ll go away with your own blog which you can keep for a year, and we'll give you some suggestions about what to do after the end of that year.
After the session, we'll leave you to further develop your blog and we'll give a £20 book voucher out the week after as a prize for the best blog created.
What does the delicate wing of a bee look like up close? Or the structure of a fungus? Join biologists to use different types of microscope to look closer at samples from biological research and nature. Then, express your scientific observations in a different way: create a collage in a giant petri-dish or a marbled art-work of your favourite sample or close up detail.
Imagine that a tiny house becomes your classroom. How would you learn differently if your lecture was relocated into a mobile shepherd's hut?

Are you interested in how countries move from conflict to peace? Or what really happens behind the closed doors of a political negotiation? Perhaps you have seen pictures of a historic peace agreement being signed, and wondered where are the women?

The workshop explores practically the many ways in which we make connections, with the emphasis on the non-verbal. It looks at the impact of body language, mood, eye-contact, touch, and gesture, and shows how tone of voice can change the meaning of the words we say. The workshop offers an opportunity for students e.g.
