University celebrates ten years at Medway
09 July 2015
Canterbury Christ Church University is celebrating ten years at Medway with a special family event for its alumni on Saturday, 18 July.
The event starts with a lunchtime barbeque allowing students and staff, past and present, to catch-up. There will also be activities for children, a special showing of the play The Sparkle Thief produced by former students and tours of the new skills labs and exhibitions.
After lunch there will be two guest lectures from University staff: Professor Anan Shetty’s talk will explore New Frontiers in Medicine.
Pioneering stem cell surgeon Anan Shetty is Professor of Orthopaedics for the University’s Institute of Medical Sciences and the Founder and Director of the Kent Knee Unit based at the Spires Alexandra Hospital. He will offer a fascinating glimpse into the future of medicine, in a world where robotics, techniques in minimally invasive surgery and even operating over the internet are taking us into previously uncharted territory.
Helen Ward, Principal Lecturer in the Faculty of Education, will explain what can be discovered from a dinosaur’s footprint in Dinosaurs, Fossils and Fun. Helen’s session will look at the science that comes from dinosaurs, involving the audience as palaeontologists solving problems and engaging in science.
Medway 10th Anniversary Celebration will take place at Rowan Williams Court, Canterbury Christ Church University, Medway Campus on Saturday 18 July 2015, 12 – 4.30pm.
This free event is open to all alumni of the Medway Campus. Advance registration is essential please visit our alumni events and reunions page.
