The Imperial Festival was a fantastic opportunity for children to meet real scientists, do real experiments and talk about real research. There was astonishing stuff where the scientists explained how their work is at the very forefront of science and engineering. There were cutting edge demonstrations on how the science works. The researchers spoke to the children about the future of science and engineering with playful gadgets and clever drones using the very best of technology and robotics.
The two day event was highly interactive and engaging for children of all ages, mixing the sciences with the arts, belly dencing and music. My daughter described the event as “fun, fun fun” with the best growing microbes from your belly button and pipetting proteins that glow in the dark.
