Preparation for the British Science Festival coming to Bradford in September is in full swing as the University is busy planning a range of events and activities due to take place on campus and the city
Bradford has previously hosted the British Science Festival twice – in 1873 and 1900. The 2011 British Science Festival is organised by the British Science Association in partnership with the University of Bradford and is supported by the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Bradford College, Yorkshire Forward and Space Connections Enterprises. Confirmed special guests for the week of the Festival include Professor Robert Winston, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and the BBC ‘Bang Goes the Theory’. During the week of the Festival, the University of Bradford will host almost 50 events that will showcase the latest science and technology.
Many academics from the University of Bradford will be running events on the city campus and many events are free.
This is a great opportunity to come and meet our academics, find out about their research and be part of Europe’s biggest science festival.
