European Explorathon: Glasgow

Introducing Explorathon – Scotland’s first ever European Researchers’ Night


All across the continent on Friday the 26th September there will be an interactive celebration of research, aiming to showcase the best innovation taking place across Europe in the Sciences and the Arts and Humanities.

The Asylum and Post-Asylum Spaces research cluster are delighted to announce that we have secured a stall at the Glasgow event, which is being held at the Glasgow Science Centre. We will be running a number of activities for both children and adults.

All of the Explorathon events are free to attend, including entrance into the Science Centre from 6pm, but some require advance booking. Events include:

A welcome message from the International Space Station in the IMAX, followed by a film.
Special editions of Café Sci, Glasgow Skeptics and Bright Club.
“Discovery zone”: Around 150 researchers bring their work to life with hands on demos.
“Researchers in the Spotlight”: A selection box of top academics deliver bitesized talks.
