Celebrating International Men's Day 2019
Some of our extremely talented Staff in the School of Biological Sciences treated their fellow colleagues and students to a fantastic showcase of their hobbies and interests 'outside the lab' in celebration of International Men's Day 2019.
The Athena SWAN Team organised this very exciting event in celebration of International Men's Day on Tuesday 19 November. Some of our male staff members who were accompanied by their friends and other members of staff from the School, showcased their 'Life Outside the Lab'.
We were treated to a sensational showcase of some of the following:
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
- a show-stopping performance of Lindy-Hop dancing
- Dodgeball and Football skills
- a demonstation of golf on the Nintendo Wii by our very own Head of School and achiever of a hole-in-one, Geoff McMullan
- shown how to make your own guitar
- informed of the benefits of running
- mental health awareness
- how to grow your own vegetables in a polytunnel
- how to create a planted acquarium
This was certainly an unforgettable event!
