With fun for all of the family, feed your curiosity and discover cutting-edge research, through interactive activities and demos, exciting talks, and comedy, plus a series of Planetarium shows throughout the night!

You’ll find the science centre packed with interactive stations with games, activities, objects and experiments. We have 50 research groups lined up with activities to suit all ages and interests. We’ll also have talks ranging from dinosaurs to space exploration, see the full schedule here: talk-schedule. We’ll also have a Glasgow Skeptics event with a special guest talk from Steve Colgan, Qi elf from the BBC series, who will be exploring what aliens might look like.

Just some of the topics on offer: medicine, physics, politics, philosophy, art, robotics, engineering, law and food. How many activities can you fit in over our 5 hour extravaganza?!
