Cambridge is set to host the biggest free science event in Britain!


The Cambridge Science Festival is organised by Cambridge University and will be running for almost two weeks from Monday March 14th.


The theme of the festival is Science For Life and over 150 events are planned to look at the ways in which science changes people's lives.


Festival organiser, Shelley Bolderson says, "The festival gives us a rare opportunity to open the lab doors of Cambridge’s ground-breaking research departments. It lets the public interact with scientists about how science is changing the world around us – and the challenges we face in the future."


This is the first year the festival will also include adult fringe events, with attractions such as The Science of Sex and A Time Travelling Coffee Shop.


Amongst others taking part in the festival will be CBBC's Gastronutty food adventurer Stefan Gates, Blue Peter science expert Steve Mould, chemist Dr Peter Wothers who is known for his explosive lectures and psychiatrist Ed Bullmore, showing how Twitter can teach us how our brains work.
