New Scientist Live 2017 - THE Must Do Science and Computing School Trip?


To any science and computing teacher out there, the brand ‘New Scientist’ will no doubt resonate with you – you are a scientist and as such you like science and computing based media and brands right? How do you translate this passion your students? There are many ways, but the good news for you is this has been made much easier with the creation of the incredible event from New Scientist, called New Scientist Live. 2016 was the first ever New Scientist Live show, and 2017 is set to grow and develop even more, meaning surely now is the time to inspire your students at this incredible leading event. Adaptable Travel have teamed up with New Scientist Live to offer the ultimate school science and computing trip package.


What is New Scientist Live?

Quite simply, probably the biggest and the best science event out there. With over 100 world-leading scientists giving inspirational talks, combined with over 200 top-class demonstrations for your students to explore and become inspired.

New Scientist Live is split into 4 fascinating zones: Technology, Brain & Body, Earth and Cosmos.

The list of science speakers attending the event is vast. In 2016, world-leading science speakers included Tim Peake, physicist Jim Al-Khalili, space scientist Monica Grady and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy. 2017 speakers are still being confirmed over the coming weeks, but one thing for sure is the organisers plan to build on and top the 2017 event and as such you can expect to be able to listen to talks from world-leading scientists, futurologists and thought leaders, inspiring the next generation. Confirmed 2017 speakers so far include physicist Jim Al-Khalili, anatomist and anthropologist Alice Roberts, mathematician Marcus du Satoy and co-founder of GoogleDeepMind AI Demis Hassabis. The speaker list will grow, but you can see the current list of confirmed speakers here.
