Cheltenham Science Festival

We are pleased to announce that TWDK will be at Cheltenham Science Festival in June. Our Natural Sciences Editor Ginny Smith will be there from 4th-7th to talk to speakers and create content for our website.

Since the first event in 2002, Cheltenham Science Festival has grown into one of the most important science festivals in the UK. The 6 day schedule is packed with talks and interactive, hands-on activities covering a huge range of scientific topics, including plenty on active areas of research.

While there, Ginny will talk to as many scientists as possible, and ask each of them one simple question: “what is the most important Thing We Don’t Know in your area of research?”. Their answers will become part of our database, and will appear on the main website once it launches.

With some of the more high-profile speakers, she will also record this discussion and produce a podcast so you can hear their answers. The podcast will be made available as one of the perks for contributing to our Indiegogo campaign “Teaching Climate Change

Of course, she will also be attending some of the fantastic talks, and tweeting from @TWeDK, so if you want to find out what she is up to, follow us on twitter! And if you're going to the festival yourself, we'd love to hear from you.
