Science Uncovered

Don’t miss seeing the Natural History Museum as you have never seen it before when it opens its doors for Science Uncovered, the biggest late night event yet.

Visitors to Science Uncovered will have a unique opportunity to meet world-class scientists and take part in science first hand, from collecting and processing crime scene evidence to experiencing the other side of the operating table in a pop-up surgery. This year’s event promises to challenge the way people engage with science, bringing visitors even closer to the cutting-edge work of the Museum’s scientists.

Several precious never-before-seen specimens will also be unveiled at the event by Museum curators and researchers such as the teeth of Boxgrove man, the oldest human remains found in Britain. The team will be on hand to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding these objects, highlighting how they are contributing to vital research today.

A series of discussions will address some of the hot issues of the day; a highlight includes award winning journalist Tim Radford and British adventurer David de Rothschild joining Museum scientists to debate the impact of our increasing need for petroleum and natural resources on our principles, as well as the earth and economy.

Hundreds of leading Museum researchers will be involved in the event giving visitors the chance to discover more about the important work they are undertaking, and, following the massive success of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s Science Uncovered will be even bigger with more than 30 different tours, numerous talks and science stations for visitors to enjoy.

There will also be hourly shows in the Attenborough Studio that will focus on a variety of scientific issues and projects such as unravelling the world of spider dating.
