Liverpool Light Night 2016


The Mosquito Diaries is an interactive exhibit put together and run by ETCH and members of the Vector Department at The Liverpool School of Tropical. From buzz wire games to little buzzers in cages, the public got a rare insight into the cutting-edge research conducted at LSTM. The exhibit had its first outing at the Everyman Playhouse as part of Liverpool’s Light Night 2016.

The exhibit aimed to inform the public about the challenges of insecticide resistance; demonstrating the benefit of combining advances in technology and traditional science to protect the interventions that have saved countless lives. The ResistanceSim bioassay mini games made an ideal addition and gave both kids and adults alike the opportunity to take on the role of a lab technician without the risk of getting bitten. A purpose built tablet edition of the mini games and custom questions were developed just for the occasion.LNv3.jpg

After the success of Light Night the whole team is really looking forward to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibit. To keep up with the Mosquito Diaries follow us on twitter @MosDiaries
