Cambridge Science Festival celebrates 20 years
28 January 2014
The Cambridge Science Festival takes place Monday 10 to Sunday 23 March with over 250 talks and events.
Questions to be explored are: What’s new in space? Why do coincidences happen? Can science make cyclists go faster? Why do cats make us sneeze?
Those taking part in this year’s Science Festival include University of Cambridge Vice Chancellor, Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz; Lord Rees, Astronomer Royal; writer Simon Singh; Professor Michael Green, recent winner of the Fundamental Physics Prize; statistics whizz Professor David Spiegelhalter, neuroscientist Professor Barbara Sahakian; Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer for England; Professor Tony Purnell, Head of Technology for British Cycling; Professor Mark Miodownik of the BBC’s Science Club; and Professor Molly Stevens, one of The Times top 10 scientists under the age of 40.
The Science Festival welcomes the return of science comedian Robin Ince, who will take a light-hearted look at art vs science; Matt Parker, stand-up mathematician; and the Naked Scientists, who will start an interactive journey through the workings of our nervous system.
The programme is out now on the Cambridge Science Festival website: www.cam.ac.uk/science-festival.
