The Cambridge Science Festival is back! The festival promises to once again tackle some of our biggest questions around healthcare, technology, climate change, and the future of humanity with a host of free events during the two-week science extravaganza – which is running now until the 24 March 2019.

Each year, the Festival welcomes visitors to hundreds of events. Over 170 event coordinators organise talks, interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, film showings, and debates with the assistance of around 1,000 staff and students from departments and organisations across the University and research institutions, charities, and industry in the eastern region. In addition, over 150 people volunteer their time to act as stewards to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable Festival experience.

For the Science on Saturday part of the Festival, Sidney CRA's Dr Laerke Recht and Dr Ioanna Moutafi are organising a stall called ‘A Game of Bones’. All are very welcome to come and see how animal bones can be used to interpret the past - a fun, learning experience for the whole family!
