It’s summer time and one of our favourite times of the year. That’s because for a week every July we throw open the doors and invite along the best and brightest scientists from around the UK to showcase their research at our Summer Science Exhibition. This presents a great chance to ask the scientists some questions face to face, and really get hands-on with cutting edge science.
