No place like bone


Fringe Festival visitor

A visitor to the Fringe event learns more about her bones.

Imperial College London held a Fringe Festival event to help visitors learn more about their bones.


The slideshow (above) features some of the highlights of last night’s event and explores some of the latest bone research being carried out at Imperial.

A collection of bone specimens from Victorian times, demonstrations in key-hole surgery and an exploration of brittle bone disease using different kinds of chocolate bar were some of the attractions at an event held last night to learn more about our bones.

The Imperial Fringe: Cutting close to the bone event, held at Imperial College London, is part of a new series of monthly evening public events for people to explore the unexpected side of science inspired by Imperial’s research. Visitors to the event attended a talk, met academics and performers and were able to take part in hands-on demonstrations to learn more about bone research being carried out by scientists, engineers and medics at the College.
