DNA at Ely Cathedral Science Festival

Posted 11 Sep 2017

Held between 19 May and 18 June 2017, the Ely Cathedral Science Festival was an exciting, month long festival offering visitors the opportunity to take part in interactive experiments and to explore science and the natural world through various mediums including art, music and exhibitions. Open to all ages, this event included science shows, live experiments and talks by leading experts including Professor Robert Winston.

Cochranes of Oxford Ltd were delighted to have their Orbit Proview DNA model included in one of these exhibitions.

Revd Dr Victoria Johnson was delighted with the model - “The model we used was a great way of helping people understand the complexity of a DNA molecule. We used the model as key part of an exhibition during the first Ely Cathedral Science Festival 'From Dinosaurs to DNA'. It took a while to build but the [Cochranes] team were on hand to make sure we put the phosphate groups in the right place! Thank you.”
