About the Festival
From poetry to politics, fiction to finance, history to hip-hop and comedy to current affairs, Cambridge Literary Festival brings an eclectic mix of today’s best writers, thinkers and speakers to Cambridge all year round. Established in 2003 as “Wordfest” before re-branding as Cambridge Literary Festival and becoming a registered charity in 2014, we deliver two literary festivals each year: our main Spring Festival in April and our weekend Winter Festival in November. In addition to two major annual festivals, we host one-off events to celebrate new publications with authors such as Zadie Smith or Colm Tóibín, or to host international authors visiting the UK such as Margaret Atwood, Svetlana Alexievich and David Miliband.

TTP challenged the students to produce a short video analysing the ergonomics and usability of objects from everyday life. Successful applicants attended a STEM outreach day at their site in Melbourn, where they experienced what it is like to be a technology consultant and how the development of products and technology can change lives.
The students worked collaboratively to brainstorm, create and refine prototypes for an innovative syringe design to be used in fat-grafting reconstructive surgery. Their ideas ranged from operating the syringe via a foot pump to minimise pressure on the wrist, to controlling flow rate using a gear in a similar way to a pipette filler, and a high-tech syringe with controls inspired by the variable temperature/speed settings on hairdryers.
TTP consultants from across the organisation took part in the activity day to talk to students about the surgical procedure and provided them with guidance throughout the day. The six students that most impressed t...
