The BA Festival of Science: 6-11 September 2008

The British Association for the Advancement of Science (BA) Festival of Science is coming to Liverpool from 6-11 September. It will bring over 350 of the UK’s top scientists and engineers to discuss the latest developments in science with the public. There will be around 200 events to chose from, taking place at the University of Liverpool and across the city as part of the European Capital of Culture 2008 celebrations.

Showcasing and debating the latest most topical and challenging scientific issues of our time, the BA Festival of Science will no doubt hold the interest of many more people than just the science elite.

You could enjoy some unique science street theatre from the Science Butlers and find out about the science of superheroes, or delve deep into the impact of climate change on our planet. Plus much much more.

The event is massive for the Capital of Culture year. It will attract many visitors to the city to see the many events, including celebrities Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Adam Hart-Davis come together with leading academics to address the public.
