Event description

Description

This event by The University of Manchester Q-Step Centre is a celebration of the success of the Q-Step Summer Internships in 2016.

Following keynote talks on the role and portrayal of data in the media, ten students will each present their internship project and its significance - in just three minutes. The presentations will then be judged by a panel and prizes awarded.

This event is an opportunity to bring together all of those involved in making the Q-Step internships a success.
