Cambridge Science Festival and Open Afternoon



On the last weekend of the Cambridge Science Festival the Kavli and the Institute of Astronomy open their doors to the public at our annual Open Afternoon.

We run between 2-6pm on a Saturday afternoon (23rd March this year). We provide talks, displays, demonstrations, activities, arts workshops with a keen amateur/general public/young family audience in mind. These are staffed by volunteers among the researchers and students at the Kavli and IoA. The brief given to volunteers is to present entertaining and educational activities which highlight the research done at the Kavli and IoA. 

The day is completely free, and these events are well attended with 1200-1500+ people typically coming through the doors.
