Small plumbing won the Heriot-Watt Public Engagement 2015 prize in the category “Team award”.
Novo Science was a partner in this public engagement scheme designed to inspire teams of S2 pupils, at two secondary schools, to “empower girls and boys to investigate engineering and discover the enabling power of microfluidic technology by challenging them to create a chip for everyday use or resource-scarce settings”.
The project was led by Maïwenn Kersaudy-Kerhoas ( University) with Helen Bridle, Tom Asprey, Prof Mark Desmulliez (all University) and Dr. Pam Cameron (Novo Science).
