The Royal Photographic Society “International Images for Science” exhibition

15 March 2017 The Hive, Sawmill Walk, The Butts, Worcester WR1 3PD

The University of Worcester is delighted to have been selected as one of the few venues to host The Royal Photographic Society’s “International Images for Science” exhibition. The exhibition features some of the world’s best science photography with astonishing scientific shots with beautiful and striking images of interest to everyone.   

The RPS exhibition opens to the public at The Hive from 8 February to 22 March, where it will be on display in the main atrium and free for all to view. 

Coinciding with the Images of Science Exhibition is British Science Week (10 March to 19 March 2017), and to celebrate this national week of science there will be a series of school workshops running at The Hive where children have been invited to investigate the theme "Hidden in Plain Sight". The workshops will bring interactive, exciting opportunities for children to investigating forensics, pollen and sound waves, guided by University staff and students.

For the public during British Science Week, in addition to the RPS International exhibition, there will be a series of smaller exhibitions on the lower ground floor at the Hive, "Fragments" by Mike Hallett and "A Nostalgia for Beauty" by David James.  These thought-provoking images showcase the photography of academics at the University who are also fellows of the RPS. 

There is also a public lecture on 14 March, entitled "The Science of Beauty", which is free and open to the public (tickets in advance). 

For families, on Saturday 18 March, the Royal Photographic Society and the University will be running a zoom box project which enables participants to make a working microscope.
