THE GREAT BIOQUEST CAMBRIDGE TRAIL LIVE

1:00pm-4:00pm on Saturday 2 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Museum of Zoology, Near the entrance, Downing Street, CB2 3EJ

Explore Cambridge science landmarks by following the Great BioQuest trail and meeting scientists who will help you solve the riddles and answer questions as you make your way along the route. Using your smartphone, complete one of three trail routes, each of which will guide you around iconic Cambridge landmarks with links to the city’s history and the science being done in labs today.

As you make your way around, you will be greeted by scientists from the Gurdon Institute, researching everything from developing microscopic worms to cloning to cancer therapies. The researchers will help you unlock the different locations on the trails and answer questions.

Each route is based on animals studied at the Gurdon Institute (worms, flies, and frogs). As you make your way around the trail, you will see your chosen animal develop from one tiny cell to a fully-grown adult and learn how that animal can give scientists clues about human development.

All trails start in front of the Zoology Museum (CB2 3EJ) and finish at the Gurdon Institute (CB2 1QN). They are fully accessible, and all visit points are within the city centre area.

Estimated times of the routes:
Worm route – 30 min
Fly route – 40 min
Frog route – 60 min
