British Science Association’s Festival of Science

Just a wee post to showcase some of the stuff that I wrote up from the BSA’s British Science festival. The festival itself was amazing and utterly convinced me of the benefits these sorts of events have to the public that attend them. Perhaps it was a little bit annoying the venue was out of Aberdeen’s city centre, but the old town’s university campus was nice – equal parts Cambridge and Disney.

Anyway, have a read!
