The Faculties Innovative Student's Hub (FISH) is one of many example of creative learning opportunities we are offering to our students. It is a space for students to come together, form interdisciplinary teams and create solutions to real-world problems.

The problems can be identified by you, putting you in the lead for tackling issues that you find exciting and relevant. Maybe you have an idea that could compete with Uber, or perhaps you could completely change the experience of being a student in Liverpool? Alternatively, you can help find solutions for problems identified by partners, such as Alder Hey children’s hospital in Liverpool.

Set in the Central Teaching Laboratory and also promoting online collaboration, you will have the necessary space and support to create electronic and computational solutions to problems. The Department of Physics supports the development of new projects.

In order to find out more about FISH, please contact Dr Chris Edmonds.
