Brighton Science Festival

UPCOMING

 

For those who will be spending Christmas with your family

in another house for safety, why not learn the exotic art of tetraflexagon making. The top demonstration below (click on it) is our seasonal offering: the 12 days of Christmas; the second will show how to make one; the third, how to fold one. Your greatest fear from then is that life may return to normal and you can’t torture pieces of paper any longer.

 

 

          

 

 

 

 

A HISTORIC NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION

Are We Nearly Here Yet?

‘Are We Nearly Here Yet?’ is the true story of the nutty Universe, crazy planet Earth, chaotic evolution and unspeakable You!

Each Saturday for eleven weeks, from January 8, we will pace our way through the story of you and the Universe, from the Big Bang, through the Earth’s emergence, the beginning of life, then milestones on the path of evolution to the present day. 

Somehow over the past 14 billion years You have dodged catastrophe after catastrophe – exploding stars, oceans of boiling acid, killer amoebas, hungry dinosaurs, pandemics (lots of them) – and emerged ruler of the Earth. Well done! This will be the story of how you did it.

EVERY SATURDAY AT 10.00 am    JANUARY  8 – MARCH 19     ON ZOOM     £13.82* PER SCREEN FOR ALL SHOWS**

*That’s £1 per billion years    **That means all of you get the whole 14 billion years for the one, only, singular ticket. (We’ve had some problems with people’s incredulity recently)

The hour long sessions come with demonstrations, games, chat, jokes, questions and surprises based around each week’s theme.

The serious aim of the show is to provide an overview of everything, to be a sort of basic scaffolding on which we hang further knowledge as it arrives though our life.

Here’s our temporary collection of  videos, games, instructibles, magic etc. It was curated a year ago to fill the wee cultural interlude called ‘lockdown’, which began just at the end of a bygone era, and is now the informal normal.

There are over a thousand offerings. you could spend all year rummaging through it.

…Who knows, you might have to.

WIDENING PARTICIPATION

We roam Sussex and further afield, visiting youth clubs, scout huts, community centres, bus shelters, anywhere, making sure everyone has access to as much science as possible. Why? Because science is cool. I mean, sometimes -273.15º celsius.
