FUTURES2021, a free festival of discovery for all the
family, returns to Bath and the South West on 24 and 25 September 2021.
Futures is a collaboration between Universities of Bath,
Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth and Bath Spa University as part of European
Researchers Night. This Europe-wide event, funded by the European Commission,
aims to bring research to life and to promote careers in research to young
people and their families.
The South West is a hub for outstanding EU research and innovation and at Futures 2021 a series of in person and online events will show how research is making our daily lives better.
There’s an opportunity to explore the city of Bath with a
self-guided, time travelling, walking tour leading you to discover some of the
buildings and locations that have shaped modern science. With researchers
popping-up as you explore and some interactive surprises, this will show Bath
in a whole new light.
Or if you
fancy an evening with a difference where laughter mixes with some science
know-how, Science Show-Off presents stand-up with a difference.
from University of Bath will also be in Bristol at Brunel’s SS Great Britain
where, for one night only, you can meet scientists, engineers, and historians
on the grounds of this historic ship and have a go at a range of hands-on
events will also be taking place throughout the weekend so whether you want to
pit your wits against researchers in a big family quiz or try ‘Do Try This At
Home’ where ready-to-use resources will enable children to engage with research
and express their curiosity, there is something for everyone.
