DANBY
The Science, Mathematics and Engineering Society of Downing College, Cambridge


The Danby Society offers the students and fellows of Downing College opportunities to discuss and attend talks on science, mathematics and engineering, promoting the interaction between different disciplines. As a forum for interesting and creative talks, we have welcomed speakers including Sir John Pendry, Sir Roger Penrose and Professor Geoffrey Grimmett. This year we will also collaborate with other science and engineering societies in Cambridge, allowing more enthusiastic students and scholars to join and contribute our speaker events.




Apart form holding speaker events, we are committed to provide our members with activities including movie nights, quizes, the annual Danby Society Dinner and Garden Party. Through these endeavours, the Society is able to offer social and intellectual enrichment to the college community.
