Project SEMIS to Exhibit at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition

Funded by The Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation, the SEMIS team at The University of Manchester recently received the news that their application to exhibit at The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in July this year had been successful. The Summer Science Exhibition is a prestigious week-long festival which celebrates the cutting edge of science in the UK and is visited by over 10,000 members of the general public.

The exhibit, Sensing Danger, will showcase the cutting edge research around metal detection and ground-penetrating radar funded by the Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation. Visitors to the exhibit will have the chance to try out metal detection for themselves and experience some of the challenges deminers face in the field.

The group also hope the exhibit will raise awareness of the continuing world landmine problem and the great work the Sir Bobby Charlton Foundation is undertaking on the issue.

The dates for the exhibition are Monday 6th July – Sunday 12th July 2020 and entrance is free. Find out more here.
