Have you heard the news? Science is cool again (it was never uncool, we just wanted to get your attention, ed). To celebrate, Imperial College London is opening the hallowed halls and laboratories of its South Kensington campus for some free scientific shenanigans this May 11/12. Cast out all memories of your Science GCSEs, you are playing with the big kids here. This is your chance to find out more about delights including revolutionary spray on fabric (these guys made a dress for Lady Gaga, obvs), get bloody in an inflatable operating theatre and witness an open-mic battle between ‘communicators of science’.
