We've been engaged in an events marathon this month! You might have caught that on social media (thanks to our new social media manager, Vika, our Facebook, Instagram & Twitter pages have been super busy with cool content!), but we'll report all the events on the blog too!

British Science Festival, 5-9 September

The entire EyesOnALZ core team met in Brighton for this event: Ieva, Claire, Vika, Egle & Pietro! Here's Vika & Egle on the way to UK (in case you didn't know that yet, Stall Catchers is a perfect lay-over activity 😜 )

BSF a press conference on Stall Catchers where Pietro presented the game & the new preliminary research result achieved with catchers help! We will upload a video of the press conference soon. It was based on this press release:

And here's some pics from the press conference, which generated lots of interest & was covered by the BBC, Australian long-running radio show: The Science Show on ABC & many local and regional news outlets! (iNews, The Mail, Financial Times, BioWorld).

Brighton Pier Takeover!
Our next adventure was running a Stall Catchers booth - in the rain, on the super windy Brighton Pier 😆

We had lots of interest though, despite the weather (and lack of a stable Internet connection, ha!), and talked to a bunch of local festival goers! Hope many of them continue to play the game!

Some got super-engaged, super-fast and were awarded with a special Stall Catchers mug 💜

We met the next day for an intense planning meeting & to discuss what's next in Stall Catchers!

That's that for British Science Festival in a nutshell.

Next: Stall Catchers/Human Computation Institute tour in Lithuania, to be reported very soon ! ;)
