The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest standing science Festival, traveling to a different place in the United Kingdom each year. The Festival aims to connect people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists.
Each year, they bring an inspiring programme of free events to the public over four or five days, bursting with exciting opportunities to get involved in. The talks, workshops and drop-in events span a diverse range of subjects that encompass science in the broadest sense, promising something for everyone!
A free online event where school students (from Year 5) meet and interact with scientists. It’s an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges. Students challenge the scientists over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK the scientists anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
Are you fascinated by science and want to communicate it to those around you? The Oxford Scientist is running its second science writing competition for UK school students who will be entering Years 11-13 for the academic year 2018-2019. There are lots of prizes to be won, and the winning entry will be published in their magazine!
