Swansea Science Festival
After the huge successs of the British Science Festival 2016, hosted by Swansea University last year, the university decided to start an annual Science Festival in Swansea. And the SNAC group was also this year part of the festival and presented “hand-on” experiments about how your eating behaviour is influenced by the environment!
You can find further information here.
We hope you enjoyed the festival! We had a great time and were impressed by the big interest in science and especially in our research, even by the young ones.
Hopefully we see you next year again.
18-22nd July 2017
SSIB 2017 (Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior)
Also this year members of the SNAC group attended the annual meeting of SSIB. The society is interested in multidisciplinary exchange of ideas and information about food and fluid intake.
Dr Menna Price and Aimee Pink presented their current findings as posters and the conference.
Here is Aimee’s impression on the conference:
“This was my first international conference and I really enjoyed being able to be a part of it. Being able to see research that is currently being undertaken across the world right now was really nice and definitely gave me some things to think of going forward with my own thesis and research”
You can now find the program and abstracts at the homepage.
8th June 2017
Visit of Year 6 St. Mary’s School
Students of St. Mary’s School Llanelli visited Swansea University to get an insight into the research of our college. Next to the Department for Nursing also the SNAC group gave some ‘hands-on’ demonstrations. The students showed great interest not only in the experiments but also in the subject of Psychology, being a PhD student here and living in Swansea.
Here some impressions of the demonstrations:
