Imperial Festival: A Celebration of Science, Engineering and Creativity

Imperial College London, one of the world’s top universities, will once again host the Imperial Festival on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May at the College’s South Kensington Campus. Flying robots, immersive art and delicious food are just some of the hands-on experiences visitors can look forward to in 2017.

The Festival is designed to share the incredible research which takes place at Imperial College London with the public. Last year, more than 15,000 visitors attended the free event for an opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and explore the latest research.

This year, visitors will be treated to live interactive experiments, new technology demonstrations, in-depth talks, lab tours, musical and dance-based performances, and creative workshops. The event is organised into zones themed around Robots, Superbugs, Health & Body, the Future, and Energy and Environment. Some of this year’s highlights include:

  • Watch robots fly and perform surgery
  • Experience Continuum, the immersive exhibition which brings together engineering, science, art, and design to explore the chain reaction involved in creative thought
  • Learn more about the behaviour of fire and find out why the Great Fire of London couldn’t happen today
  • Enjoy performances from Imperial jazz, vocal and string groups, as well as tap, zumba and belly dancers
  • Get behind the controls of Imperial’s own flight simulator; a full motion simulator used to investigate the performance of future aircraft
  • Try out Imperial’s ‘Intelligent Kiosk’ photobooth and find out if robots can guess age, gender and emotions

In addition to the hands-on experiences in the research zones, there is plenty more to enjoy, including music and dance performances. There is also plenty of delicious fresh food on offer throughout the weekend.
