Explore the extraordinary

Roll up, roll up to our science-inspired Victorian fairground of the heart in our Body and Mind zone. Or take an immersive, multi-sensory dip into dark matter. Whilst inside our robot zone you can play air hockey against a robot or ask our robot butler for a drink.

Experiment with us

Make your own tactile map of the moon, use lego Mindstorms and iPads to build autonomous vehicles to navigate the city or create your own wonder material sculptures and space art out on Exhibition Road.

Express yourself

Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for The Planets: An HD Odyssey or become a member of the James Brown horn section - there’s loads of ways to immerse yourself in art, music and theatre at the Festival. Contribute to a collaborative magazine using collage making and storytelling at our Imagination Station, or head to the performance tent to hear science-themed spoken word poetry.

Expand your mind

Escape the Festival for a full programme of talks and debates. We put a spotlight on the latest research covering everything from missions to Jupiter to air pollution mapping in the capital. Whilst our Ideas Exchange series sees artist, designers scientists and campaigners come together to discuss everything from the future of food to solving plastic in our oceansand the role AI can play in creativity.
