Science to inspire you

Royal Holloway’s annual science festival is skipping a year but will be back again in Spring 2018.

Usually held in February/March time, the College took the difficult decision not to host the event this year due to large construction projects underway at the main campus in Egham. These include a flagship library and student services building and a new science building.

Professor Paul Hogg, Dean of Science and Vice Principal said,

“The science festival has attracted crowds of over 6,000 visitors in previous years, and it was felt that accommodating so many people at an event which has moving freely around campus as a main feature, whilst ensuring everyone’s safety and enjoyment couldn’t happen this year. We hope people will join us again next year for another great day for science!”

Royal Holloway has lined up a couple of free public events to mark British Science Week. They include a talk on Cybersecurity at the IET in London on Wednesday 15 March presented by researchers in Information Security and Psychology, and an Astronomy talk by Physicists aimed at amateur stargazers on Thursday 16 March from 6.30pm at the Egham campus. Online registration for both events can be found on Royal Holloway’s events website 

The date for our 2018 event will be published later this year. Join us again to discover and be inspired by some of the amazing science research we do at our campus in Egham, Surrey.
