Imperial Festival 2014

We brought fluid dynamics research to Imperial Festival (9-10 May 2014) in collaboration with the group of Omar Matar. Our science demonstration Making fluids work for us showed how learning about fluid flow phenomena helps researchers devise new processes and even new methods to deliver drugs in the human body. Watch the highlights of Imperial Festival 2014 here.
