Hull University and the British Science Association have unveiled the full programme for the the British Science Festival 2018 – hosted by the university – and it looks pretty amazing.
Taking place from Tuesday 11th September – Friday 14th September the festival features well over 100 free events (but you will need tickets for most of them, and they’re expected to get snapped up pretty quickly). Our favourites include ‘Unlocking the Canine Mind‘ because doggos, and ‘How the Universe will End‘ because space, but there really is something for everyone. There’s everything from beatboxing to fossils, via horror films and Brexit – you can have a look through the different events (and book tickets) on the British Science Festival website.
Hosting the Festival is an incredible opportunity for the University to help showcase the best of British science to inspire the public, along with providing a fantastic platform for us to highlight our research excellence in topics such as energy, the environment and healthcare with over 30 of our researchers hosting sessions over the four-day Festival.
The programme will build on the already strong foundations of science engagement, as well as the University’s successful City of Culture programme, bringing thousands of visitors to campus and the region. The Festival will see many celebrated scientists visiting the city, truly bringing science to life in a fun, interactive and informative way.
