Norwich Science Festival 2020 At Home

We tackled the climate crisis, explored the psychology of serial killers and even dissected an animal live!

Norwich Science Festival At Home took place 24–28 October 2020. 

The main Norwich Science Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic and the team organised an online mini programme of engaging family shows, virtual talks and activities that could be done at home.  

Events ranged from family friendly topics such as lunchtime lava, dinosaurs, underwater creatures, and space, to events for adults on COVID-19, the climate crisis, serial killers, a science quiz, and even a live animal dissection! 

The At Home mini programme was organised by The Forum, with partners UEA and Norwich Research Park.
