Clear your diaries, because from 10-13 September, more than 100 FREE events, activities and performances are coming to town! The British Science Festival will transform the region into a celebration of science and culture, featuring talks from Professor Alice Roberts, author Angela Saini, presenter Konnie Huq, historian Michael Scott and broadcaster Claudia Hammond. Plus, a special filming of The Sky at Night: Question Time with Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock and Professor Chris Lintott.
Held in partnership with the University of Warwick, the programme highlights local strength in digital technologies, smart cities and the future of energy and healthcare. There’s a special emphasis on the fun, thought-provoking, and societal aspects of science to show how it’s not just confined to laboratories, but something that’s all around us.
Other highlights include unforgettable interactive experiences like a live 3-D psychedelic show and festival carpool in a driverless pod, discussions on how ‘gaming becomes gambling’, how AI could revolutionise cancer treatment, and how to tackle food poverty with food writer Jack Monroe.
Not to mention, a mud kitchen and tea-blending for adults and a takeover of Coventry’s FarGo Village with comedy, artistic workshops and an escape room.
