Our November 2019 Charity of the Month is an organisation that aids understanding in the fields of medicine, science, and technology. Friends Of Imperial College are a great charity that just wants to help people learn – we’re going to teach you all about it.
Friends Of Imperial College contributes to public understanding
Friends Of Imperial College was founded in 2002. The charity aims to teach people about some of the key knowledge bases in society – medicine, science and technology. It has a simple aim: to “entertain and inform non-specialists and experts alike.”
How does this charity help people learn about medicine, science & technology?
Friends Of Imperial College makes its services available to medicine, science, and technology. Why? Because wants everyone to have access to knowledge in these pillars of society.
There are three main ways that Friends Of Imperial College teaches people about these three key topics:
- Visits to Imperial College London: You can go behind the scenes at the university, giving you a chance to see working laboratories and research institutes.
- Subject talks: Specialist scientists give public talks and lectures – everyone is welcome!
- Weekend trips abroad: There are tours to the Large Hadron Collider in CERN, Geneva and some of the world’s other key technological centres.
You can get an idea of the sort of events run by this great charity by looking at the Friends Of Imperial College 2018-19 calendar.
