Imperial Festival

IGHIIGHI exhibited at Imperial Festival 2014.  From testing lung capacity in the Helix centre using balloons all the way through to testing members of the public for liver fluke with the Centre for Gut Health – IGHI had something for everyone.  The Centre for Health Policy exhibited a thought tree which allowed members of the public to speak out about current global health challenges and what they thought should be done to overcome them.  The Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery enjoyed the delight on children’s faces as they watched Neo the robot dance and they also enjoyed trying their hand at the penguin video game in order to find out about how the Centre’s EaR sensor works and what it is being used for.
