Summer Science ExhibitionThe annual Summer Science Exhibition at The Royal Society gives an insight into the most exciting cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. Everything from solar fuels to DNA sequencing is examined through exhibits, panel discussions and events, all of it for free. There are exhibits on studies into complementary and alternative medicines, arctic meltdown and the opportunities for creating entire human organs using 3D printing technology. Not sure where to start? Lunchtime taster sessions in the Terrace Cafe tell you more about the exhibits. Other highlights include a talk by novellist Emma Donoghue in a conversation with Susannah Herbert, former literary editor of The Sunday Times, about the enduring emotional consequences of significant childhood experiences. And there are family focussed activities, shows and demonstrations for children and families on the weekend, including an historically accurate panto for children and other childish people.
