The Road to Race for Science
Getting inspiration for Race for Science has been one of the most fun parts of my role for the last few months. In order to make RFS the spectacular event we know it can be, we need exciting, hands-on scientific activities that have a challenge component. One of the most important places we’ve gotten inspiration so far has been at the Cambridge Science Festival, which took place from the 12th to the 25th of March 2018. I went up for 2 weekends to try out some activities, meet scientists, get a sense of the atmosphere of the festival, and generally act like a kid again.
Without further ado, here’s part 1 of our epic Science Festival adventure.
