Discussion > FREE EVENTS : Friday, 26 September European Researchers' Night events!

European Researchers' Night events! mostly FREE
All seem to feature a lot of good non-climate lectures/stuff (not that much green propaganda this year)
- This will give you the opportunity to visit labs and meet some scientists..Those who haven't been before will learn that some scientists really know what science is ..and that some other scientists seem to have NO knowledge of how the proper scientific process works and/or have no grasp of common maths fallacies etc.
NHM NIGHT 5: London the Natural History Museum, London (no climate)
BGCN: Bristol - 1 climate : Nuclear Pasts and Fracking Futures in SWEngland
Jill Payne
YORNIGHT: York features a thread called * Let's go Green! (STEMS)! ..but also many good non-climate stuff also N Rail Museum
Edinburgh (on FB),
Glasgow Full (limited availability on night)
LIGHT NIGHT: Birmingham (unknown to the web)

York has a very good list of events but includes some climate stuff eg
York : Mark Hodson 5.30pm - 5.45pm (really 15 mins ??)
King's Manor KG/07 (map) FREE admission No booking required
For predictions of future climate change we need to know how climate changed in the past. Join environmental scientist Mark Hodson as he shows how we can use stalagmites from caves, corals, shellfish and even earthworm poo as time machines to take the temperature of the planet long ago
Let's go Green! (STEMS)!
Activities and exhibition, 4pm - 10pm, King's Manor Marquee
At YorNight, GreenSTEMS members will be presenting their exciting green projects on various fields through an interactive exhibition and hands-on-science activities, asking the important question “Waste: refuse or resource?”
also Light-trapping for Photovoltaic Cells
Activities and exhibition, 5pm - 9pm, Treasurer's House * win a own solar lamp to take home
but also some reason : "Discover how nuclear power works and how radioactive a banana is! "
