London Science FestivalThe London Science Festival prompts us to see science in the city. Through collaborations with leading scientists, artists, museums, universities and independent organisations including the Natural History Museum, the festival opens science up to inspire audiences of all ages. Key curatorial themes for the 2014 festival are Life, and Science & London. Highlights include the Great British Bioscience Festival; New Medicines: A vital, but risky business; and NASA's journey to Mars ft Dr Ellen Stofan, NASA Chief Scientist. Essentially, the London Science Festival opens science up to audiences of all ages, creates forums for debate, and encourages participation through events, many of which are free of charge and drop-in.
