Are you looking to give a talk at a conference? We have just the right
opportunity for you!
IN[SCI]TE is a new
interdisciplinary science, technology, and engineering conference, which will
take place here in St John’s on the 18th and 19th of
March, 2017. IN[SCI]TE is run by undergrads, and the talks will be both
delivered by and aimed at undergrads.
The aims for IN[SCI]TE are to
broaden the knowledge and awareness of science undergrads outside their field
of study, to provide a setting for undergrads to give a talk at a scientific
conference during their degree, and to inspire future scientists to enter
areas of work that cross the boundaries in science.
We are now accepting
applications for speakers! Submit an application at http://inscite.co/cambridge/talk/.
To keep up to date
with the conference, like us on facebook.com/insciteco, and follow us @insciteco

Do you love bees? Come along to the St John’s College Beekeepers Society’s next event, a screening of “More Than Honey” by Academy Award-nominated director Markus Imhoof. This documentary explores the lives of honey bees worldwide, asking the question of what a decline in bee populations may mean for the human race. Guaranteed to be a fascinating watch!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEXT SUMMER?
We are recruiting committed students to spend 10 weeks in East Africa investing time and money in one of our partner schools. Living and working in a rural community, our volunteers develop essential transferable skills whilst experiencing vibrant East African culture.
For a challenging, rewarding and inspiring summer, find out more and apply at www.epafrica.org.uk – round two recruitment is now open.
Following personal fundraising and detailed training throughout the academic year, volunteers often invest in new educational resources, small infrastructure projects and schemes to improve students’ health and welfare. Crucially, they are trusted to plan and deliver their own projects, a challenge that provides a rich and varied personal development opportunity.
Employers such as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Deloitte and the WHO have regularly been impressed by the autonomy and critical thinking volunteers have demonstrated through their projects. Many volunteers also continue to build experience by volunteering with the charity after the project has finished.
Flexible return dates and a holiday week during the project also provide a brilliant opportunity to explore East Africa further.
Find us on Facebook here.

The JCR Committee are attempting to cover up more of the horrible yellow paint in the JCR by getting a collection of canvases printed to go up on the walls, and we need your artwork/photographs to go on the canvases. The canvases will be 100 x 80 cm so any images need to be of high quality so they don’t distort, and any artwork would need to be in a form where we could submit it to be printed on canvas. Landscape pieces would be preferable, although portrait will also be considered. The artwork/photographs can be on any theme, although pieces with a connection to college are preferred. An edible reward will be given for anyone who’s artwork is selected to be printed and put up the JCR.

Our final talk of term will be from Dr Alex Chin, Winton Advanced Research Fellow in the Physics of Sustainability. Dr Chin studies the optimisation of light-harvesting in photosynthesis from a physicist’s perspective, at the Cavendish Laboratory. This
talk is applicable to pretty much all science students, spanning right
from Physicists and Engineers through to Biologists interested in
cellular or whole organism biology. Come along for a chance to wind down
with some end of term scientific discussion, free wine and other
refreshments as always and a chance to network with many other
scientists at various stages in their careers. All
colleges and disciplines welcome – bring your friends, the more the
merrier! This will be in the Fisher Building at 6pm on Wednesday 23rd November – check out our Facebook event here.
