Glasgow Science Centre is holding its second online festival 19-21 May and everyone aged 10 and upwards is invited to attend.
Curious About Innovation will celebrate the innovative spirit in all of us, and how that spirit can change the world.
The three-day programme of live talks, interviews, games and resources will reveal how technology and innovation are solving global challenges.
Top innovators from Scotland and around the world are taking part. Experts from organisations like Rolls Royce, AAC Clyde Space, the National Oceanographic Centre, IBM and the Scottish Space School have all signed up.
NASA astronauts and engineers will be beamed in from the USA to answer questions about life on Mars; the Royal Navy will take everyone on a guided tour round a virtual submarine and the plans to get oysters cleaning the Clyde will be revealed.
The festival is free and open to everyone, just register on https://curiousabout.glasgowsciencecentre.org/.
Stephen Breslin, chief executive of Glasgow Science Centre, said: “Curious About Innovation has been designed to entertain and inspire everyone aged 10 and upwards.
“Some of the world’s most exciting science and technology will be showcased in the festival. It will cover industries like space, construction, cyber security, health, robotics and the environment.”
“The festival will inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by highlighting the career paths and employers that are available to young people in Scotland.”
Curious About Innovation is Glasgow Science Centre’s second online festival. It builds on the themes connected with GSC’s IdeaNo59 exhibition, which everyone can visit in person when the science centre reopens.
The festival also supports GSC Learning Lab’s space module and GSC’s STEM Future’s programme, which is helping thousands of young people into STEM work experience and career choices.
Curious About Innovation is free to everyone, but those aged 10 and upwards will get the most out of it. Visit https://curiousabout.glasgowsciencecentre.org/ for updates.
The festival is being delivered with support from the Inspiring Science Fund provided by Wellcome, UKRI and BEIS with additional support from JP Morgan, Mathworks and the University of Strathclyde.
