It is time to start thinking of ideas for Biomakespace events at next year’s Cambridge Science Festival.
The deadline for submitting all the event details (speakers, venue, etc…) to be in the printed programme is Monday 6th November! (Events each get ~50 word description in the programme, and a web page with a picture, the picture/photo for a few selected events are included in the printed edition.)
The Science Festival runs Mon 12th March to Sunday 25th March: Monday to Friday the main events are evening talks to the public at Mill Lane Lecture Rooms (& a few more talks at various museum & university venues); Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th March family events & activities in the city centre including the Guildhall, and the Plant Sciences Marquee (Saturday only); Saturday 24th March events at the university’s West Cambridge campus (e.g. Physics department), Institute of Astronomy, community activities in Eddington; Sunday 25th March Addenbrookes / Biomedical Campus.
Also the science festival in 2018 will be doing some outreach to harder to engage communities in the run up to the festival, targeting north Cambridge and visits to Primary Schools in the region. Deadline for risk assessments & evidence of Public Liability Insurance is 12th February.
For 2017 we had an evening talk (in Plant Sciences department, we were too late to get a slot in Mill Lane), some hands on activities with electrophysiology in the Plant Sciences Marquee, and tours of the Biomakespace.
