Split into four immersive zones – Brain & Body, Technology, Earth and the Cosmos – students will see science brought to life with over 200 first-rate demonstrations and more than 100 thought-provoking talks from the most influential names in science, fuelling the imagination of every young scientist.
Students will be able to listen to talks from world-leading scientists, futurologists and thought leaders, inspiring the next generation. 2016 speakers included astronaut Tim Peake, physicist Jim Al-Khalili, space scientist Monica Grady and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy. 2017 speaker topics covered will range from the Higgs boson to sports science, to driverless cars, AI and so much more. Confirmed speakers for 2017 can be found here.
Students will be able to learn from the huge range of demonstrations and experiences, and get hands on with science. In addition, they will be able to speak to scientists from the Royal Society of Biology, The Royal Academy of Engineering, Imperial College London, The Science Council and many many more. Last year’s show featured the Bloodhound Project's adrenaline-pumping 1,000mph car, a chance to see the European Space Agency's Exomars Rover in the flesh, VR demonstrations, and 'The Rentokil Pestaurant' where visitors could try a range of edible creepy crawlies. 2017 content will be confirmed in the coming months.
