We are delighted to announce that this year’s Cheltenham Science Festival will still be going ahead as a virtual festival to be streamed for free 2-7 June via Cheltenham Festivals YouTube channel.
This year’s festival will be called Cheltenham Science Festival @ Home as the team invite you to join them on your smartphone, smart TV or laptop for six days of science events. The Festival will mix live online events, pre-recorded events with live Q + As with speakers, participatory workshops and other novel online formats. The daily programme will start at 10am and run through until 8pm. Details about the daily programme can be found here: https://www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/science-home/whats-on/grid
Some year groups have scheduled events, as part of their home learning on Google Classroom.
In addition to the main events, the festival has also organised a virtual Discover Zone:
We know how much you enjoy the Discover Zone, the hands-on hub of science exploration. This year, the festival is bringing the Discover Zone to your home. Featuring online activities from Festival partners such as computer games, design and codebreaking challenges and a virtual tour of a power plant, there are plenty of activities to immerse yourself in with Cheltenham Science Festival @ Home. Have fun!
