Put your creative skills to the test with our mini Longitude prize craft challenge.

To tackle the growing levels of antimicrobial resistance, the Longitude Prize challenges the public to create an affordable and effective test for bacterial infection.

In our mini version, pick your sample of blood, phlegm or urine and build your own diagnostic tests from LEDs, kazoos, pipettes, pipe cleaners, and more! Can you meet the criteria and design something that will help address the problem? Enter your invention to win a giant microbe!

This event is part of our Summer Science Exhibition Lates evening.
