We hope to encourage people to discover the wonder of the world they live in. Our week-long event hopes to enthuse the people of Cardiff through providing experiences that are inspiring and confidence-building.”
Highlights for 2012 include Comedy events such as “Science Showoff”, a science-themed open mic night or the “Bright Club” where researchers become comedians for one night only. Think of it like a kind of The Thinking Person's Variety Night! And don’t miss the brand new Edinburgh Fringe-bound show, “Nature Fail” - a brand new comedy performance about how technology helps the human race defy Mother Nature’s limits.
Family events include a special screening of the brand new Ice Age film, preceded by a talk from a science expert. Science rapper Jon Chase will be rapping in the science marquee at Mermaid Quay and Cardiff’s own Dr Mark Lewney will delight teenage audiences with his “Rock Guitar in 11 Dimensions” show.
Adult events include “I'm a Scientist…Get me out of here” will have five scientists on stage, voted off one by one by the audience until a winner is crowned. The whole festival culminates with non-other than a science fiction themed ceilidh!
Cardiff Science Festival is being organised by a group of volunteers with the aim of providing as many fun and informative events as possible whilst keeping the costs as low as possible.
