Not all research happens in labs, you can find it in the most unexpected places. African jungles, the icy plains of Antarctic, even in city streets you can sometimes spot a researcher doing exciting work. Anyone can be a researcher and any place can be a lab! Be creative and send us a digital picture, a photo or a drawing showing researchers at work. (Hint: YorNight will be a great source of inspiration!)

Win York Passes for a family (4 passes) and explore over 30 attractions in and around York. The prizes are kindly provided by VisitYork.
