Celebrate 100 years of science at @imperialcollege

Posted at 8:00 am, April 4, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Technology

The name ‘Strictly Science’ conjures up awkward images of academics competitively shaking their money makers in front of a bitchy panel of judges. As enjoyable as that sounds, we think that what Imperial College London has planned for their ‘Strictly Science’ exhibition from April 4-14 will hopefully be much less cringeworthy and more entertaining. To mark 100 years of astounding scientific progress from the hard-grafters at the Medical Research Council, the College have put on a show that looks forward and back to see how far we have come in 100 years and where we will be in 2113.

Head to the contemporary neurotechnology lab to use Wii technology and motion capture suits to look deeper into the workings of our brains. Or perhaps you’d rather be transported back to the heady days of the WWI and II with medical breakthroughs re-enacted. Be warned though, wartime medics had no time for the squeamish! There will be talks by prominent scientists, oh, and you can wear 3D glasses too. Adam Bloodworth
