The Curiosity Carousel Knowledge Fair

Roll up roll up, to our very special FUTURES 2020 Research Fair. Join our team of researchers as we host a carousel of exciting events designed to intrigue and amaze.

At the Curiosity Carousel you can hear from and talk to a variety of researchers, and a special video presentation from the SS Great Britain will show you aspects of the ship that you don’t get to see on a typical visit!

The Carousel will feature researchers working on all sorts of topics and problems, including:

  • Can computers help us feel better about our bodies?
  • How do you get a chick from an egg?
  • How can artificial intelligence gives clues about links between hip shape and arthritis?
  • Fantastic bacteria and how to fight them
  • How can data tell us what’s good for us?
  • How can we use Virtual Reality technology?
  • How can you generate electrical pulses with your finger?

How the Carousel work?
In our virtual conference hall, you can “take a seat” at a researcher’s table. The researchers will share their research in various ways: they will talk with you, show you demonstrations or videos, run a mini-quiz, and answer your questions. You’ll be able to see and talk to the researcher/s and the other members of the public who are around the same table.

About every ten minutes we’ll ask everyone to “stand up” and move around to another table and meet a different researcher (that’s the carousel part). The presentation from the SS Great Britain will be broadcast from the “main stage” to the whole hall at once, so no matter how busy you are interacting with researchers you won’t miss it! And afterwards the carousel will continue.
