The Triple Helix is a global forum for science in society, run by students at over 25 of the world’s leading universities. Our aim is to improve the standard of debate on scientific matters affecting the wider public, whilst providing students with the necessary skills and a platform on which to actively partake in the discussion. With the Cambridge chapter as one of the most active ones across the globe today, our activities include -

  • Producing the quarterly journal “The Science in Society Review” - written, edited and produced entirely by undergraduates, whilst being reviewed by academics from Cambridge and further afield.
  • Hosting fortnightly panel debates, exploring the interdisciplinary issues surrounding science in our everyday lives, with expert academics and policy makers.
  • Organising a variety of outreach events and workshops with the aim of engaging school students with science in society.
  • Taking discussions about science and society into informal settings, as part of our role in the Café Scientifique initiative.

And that’s not all! Our international presence and a united voice translates into a vast range of exciting opportunities for you to take part in, including being able to present posters on topics you feel passionate about at the AAAS Annual Meeting in the US.

In addition to that, there are numerous occasions to get involved in collaborations with the wider Cambridge science community e.g. running events and activities for the Cambridge Science Festival, and the Excellence East initiative.

We warmly invite to explore the website and get involved!
