IET Open House Day

The Institution of Engineering and Technology held their Engineering Open House Day on 3 August 2018 for young people and their parents to learn what it’s like to work as an engineer, and MetaboLight was invited to be part of the University College London Engineering booth to inspire people!


We had a rush of enthusiastic youngsters interested in STEM pour into the hall, and had a blast explaining how we use certain wavelengths of light to measure brain oxygenation and metabolism. Some of the visitors were thrilled to see what this technology can do and how it has already helped save so many baby lives. We hope more people learn about Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and that more can benefit from this technology in the near future!
