Suitability: 14 Yrs +


What revolutionary device, created in Northern Ireland, can save lives anywhere and everywhere? The portable defibrillator of course. Developed by Professor Frank Pantridge and Professor John Anderson, we’ll reveal the history and stories behind the development of this truly (shocking) lifesaving device. Hear from passionate speakers in the exciting fields of biological science and engineering, see the early prototypes and learn how innovation and STEM spark new bio-engineering ideas and products at this Royal Society of Biology event. The inspiring presentations will be followed by a lively networking reception to build future (electrical) connections along with hands-on demonstrations.
