Cambridge Science Festival

The Cambridge Science Festival has now finished and will return in 2020.

The 2019 Cambridge Science Festival is set to host over 350 events as it explores a range of issues that affect today’s world, from challenges around climate change policy, improving safety and quality in healthcare, and adolescent mental health, to a look at what the next 25 years holds for us and whether quantum computers can change the world.

Celebrating its 25th year, the Festival runs for two weeks from 11th - 24th March and explores the theme of ‘discoveries’. An impressive line-up of acclaimed scientists includes microscopist Dame Professor Pratibha Gai, Astronomer Royal Professor Lord Martin Rees, 2018 Nobel prize winner Sir Gregory Winter, geneticist Dr Giles Yeo, statistician Professor David Spiegelhalter, engineer Dr Hugh Hunt, marine biologist and author Helen Scales, THIS Institute Director Professor Mary Dixon-Woods, futurist Mark Stevenson, and science presenter Steve Mould.

This year’s Cambridge Science Festival also celebrates significant milestones in science, including the 200th anniversary of Cambridge Philosophical Society, Cambridge’s oldest scientific society, and 150 years since the publication of the modern Periodic Table.

You can download the full programme here.  

Bookings open on Monday 11 February at 11am.
