Glasgow Science Centre is hosting a three-day online festival that focuses on how technology and innovation are key to addressing a range of global challenges. The event, which is scheduled from May 19 to 21, 2021 is open for everyone aged 10 and upwards.
Entitled Curious About Innovation, the online festival will feature live talks, interviews, games and resources that highlight the global challenges that we are currently facing and how we can address them using available technologies and innovative ideas. It is the second online festival hosted by Glasgow Science Centre. It builds on the themes connected with GCS's IdeaNo59 exhibition which everyone can visit in person when the centre reopens.
The festival is being delivered with support from the Inspiring Science Fund provided by Wellcome, UKRI and BEIS with additional support from Mathworks, JP Morgan and the University of Strathclyde.
Stephen Breslin, chief executive of Glasgow Science Centre, said: “Curious About Innovation has been designed to entertain and inspire everyone aged 10 and upwards.
“Some of the world’s most exciting science and technology will be showcased in the festival. It will cover industries like space, construction, cybersecurity, health, robotics and the environment.”
The festival will feature NASA live talk on May 19 and 20, a virtual submarine tour with the Royal Navy on May 19, a cybersecurity workshop on May 19, David Elder lectures on May 20 and Innovation cocktails on May 21.
