bioLeeds is a group of people interested in art, design and making with biology in Leeds city region.

Meet us at Leeds Market Saturday 2nd August and pick up some science

BioLeeds has a stall at Leeds Market on Saturday 2nd August from 12.00pm-3.00 pm, where we are doing some bio-science and art based fun activities to engage with the public of Leeds. Join us to pick up some science with your weekly shop:

1. Test your sense of smell with a few mysterious scents.

2. Take a cell-fie: using your own cells and a home-made microscope we can build your portrait, and give you a copy to take home.

3. Do some fruit and veg chromatography.

We’ll be in the bottom left corner of the market, on the row of butchers stalls.
