i-sense will be at this year's Spark Festival London with an interactive stall 'Bug Hunters', at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 30th and 31st August at 11am-6pm.
Infectious diseases are an inevitable part of life- constantly emerging and evolving- but that doesn’t mean that they can't be stopped in their tracks...
This event will provide an interactive journey through the hunt for bugs- to identify disease outbreaks much earlier than ever before. It will include an interactive demonstartion as to how the technologies we use everyday- mobile phones, apps, search engines, social media- can be used to rapidly test and track infectious diseases.
There will be plenty of fun and hands-on activities; from art projects and puzzle competitions to helping spread a “disease” around the festival.
Feel free to tweet about the event using #bughunters!
