ASCUS Lab Open Sessions are times when our Lab is open to anyone (artists, scientists or the general public) interested in creative experimentation using the tools of science. Open Sessions are self-led and are designed to provide space for participants to put new or existing lab skills into action. During these Open Sessions you will have access to lab bench space and specialist equipment, technician advise will be available but one-to-one training is only available outside of Open Session times.
Visit ASCUS for more information.
