Festival of Tomorrow
18th February @ 9:00 am - 20th February @ 5:00 pm
A festival of science and technology surrounded by Brunel’s engineering in Swindon, the hub of UK science and innovation.
Scientists and engineers will exchange knowledge and ideas with the public online.
Partners from industry, government and academia will reveal the latest innovations for today and tomorrow…
This free, online event will showcase the latest research which will help us all to shape the future, from cutting edge technology to advances in our understanding of everything from medicine to climate science and the creative industries.
Registered attendees to the festival can join an exciting agenda of talks and shows, covering everything from the future of food and medicine to the latest on space exploration and the fight to tackle climate change.
Families will also be able to visit a virtual discovery zone and can meet and chat with scientists and engineers from a wide range of institutes, universities, and businesses. The Science Museum Group will be premiering their new digital activities, and the UK Space Agency will be teaming up with Auroch Digital and gamer eirawave to chat to the public whilst streaming footage of their Mars Horizon game, made with the European Space Agency. Intel are back this year, to reveal the latest in computing and 5G, and visitors can even book onto virtual planetarium shows. Visitors will be able to drop in to live demonstrations, learn how to make their own space blankets, take a behind-the-scenes tour of a lab, or create some science-inspired art – among many other family-friendly activities.
For the first time, we are also laying on events aimed at adults on the Friday and Saturday evenings, with an online ‘pub quiz’ presented by a Virtual Reality quizmaster and even a Science Comedy Panel Show!
Together, we shape the future…
