Event Details

Our scientists are a globe-trotting, mountain climbing, ocean crossing and jungle trekking community whose careers take them all over the globe....  However, for one night they will descend on South Kensington to tell stories of exploration as Imperial Lates returns with its latest free evening of hands-on science, tech demos, geeky bar games, creative art workshops and lively talks and discussions. This is your chance to tour the world of science; from new, low-cost prosthetics engineered in Cambodia and diet monitoring wearable tech trialed in Ghana, to oil-spill clean-up sponges developed in India. In Europe, we will be exploring gardening therapy for patients in Italy and bumblebee surveys in Arctic Sweden, whilst saving a species of apple tree from extinction in central Asia. At a unique time for the UK and its position on the world stage, Science without borders will explore research as a tool to bring us together and discuss its role in maintaining international relationships in a post-Brexit Britain. The evening will also celebrate Black History Month with a showcase of globe-trotting BAME scientists telling their tales from the field and the stories of their career.
