Imperial Festival 2016

BACKGROUND

To celebrate its fifth birthday, the Imperial Festival returned with the biggest event yet! Thousands of visitors descended on Imperial College London’s South Kensington campus over a sunny weekend in early May for the fifth annual exploration of all things science.

The Festival explored the most exciting areas of science including hallucinogenic drugs, epidemics, climate change and artificial intelligence with a cocktail of hands-on exhibits, talks, tours and shows.

Popular highlights of previous Festivals featured again this year including the Superbug Zone and Robot Zone. New highlights for this year included the Transport Zone and the Energy and Environment Zone, where visitors had a chance to race laser tractor beams and build their own ecosystems.
