Newcastle will this year be hosting the British Science Festival from the 7th September.
The festival, which is hosted in a different city each year, is designed to show off the scientific credentials of the city and area. Newcastle University is hosting the festival, which has also associated itself with Northumbria University and the City Council. With a third of events focussing on university research, and trips to local landmarks such as Cragside and the Kielder Observatory, the festival is set to be very local in feel.
Run by the British Science Association, with talks from experts such as Robert Winston and Maggie Aderin-Pocock, the event has been running since 2005 and caters for all kinds of people – school groups, families and adults alike. Interactive events, talks and workshops span the week, which is set to celebrate science, engineering and technology and the effects they have on us all.
