The British Science Festival is the largest and longest established annual public science event in Europe.
This year, the festival will be descending on the town of Aberdeen from 4 – 9 September, with over 200 events to choose from. Over the years the Festival has played host to an array of extraordinary events. Did you know that it was at our Festival that the word ‘scientist’ was coined and the first time the word ‘dinosaur’ was ever used?
The Festival is as exciting today as it’s ever been, bringing you a whole host of household names including science presenters, Professor Brian Cox, Dr Iain Stewart, and Dr George McGavin, award winning writer Bill Bryson, and president of the Royal Society, Sir Paul Nurse – to name just a few.
