The University of Hull is hosting the ever-popular Humber Science Festival which is set to dazzle guests from across the region.
Hosted and organised by the University of Hull, this extravaganza of scientific exploration and innovation welcomes members of the public and visitors of all ages in an event that brings together enthusiasts, researchers and scientists.
The Festival runs from Thursday 7 to Saturday 10 September and includes a spectacular projection onto the outside of The Deep after dusk (at approximately 8.30pm 7-9 September).
‘The Compass’ will take centre stage as an immersive experience for all to enjoy during the Festival. This goes beyond a traditional installation, as it’s a cutting-edge projection mapped masterpiece which will be highlighted onto the side of The Deep. It was first commissioned by the British Science Association for the British Science Festival in Leicester in 2022 and it has now made its way to the Humber Science Festival to dazzle the crowds.
Festival Director Professor Mark Lorch, a chemist and science communicator at the University of Hull, said: “This Festival will inspire and celebrate curiosity, with an incredible lineup of activities, shows and thought-provoking workshops.
“We’ve run the Festival in the past and it’s always proven to be extremely successful, popular and well-loved, with people visiting from all over the region to marvel at the scientific explorations. It’s a Festival which can be enjoyed by a wide range of people, with activities and seriously impressive showcases taking place throughout the few days.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing attendees explore everything available in this year's Festival, as it’s bigger than ever before.
“Whether you’re a budding science fan or you’re experienced in the field, this Festival is open to everyone who is looking for an unparalleled scientific experience.”
