Research is all about lab coats and test tubes, right? Actually, research is about much, much more – in fact many researchers have never worn a lab coat in their lives! Research is feeding curiosity and answering questions - like whether you can turn orange into grapefruit!
The Curiosity Carnival on Friday 29 September is a chance to find out what research is really all about, meet researchers, ask questions and discover how research affects and changes all our lives.
The night is a huge festival of curiosity – a city-wide programme of activities across the University of Oxford’s museums, libraries, gardens and woods. There will be a wide range of activities for all ages and interests – live experiments, games, stalls, busking, debates, music, dance and a pub-style quiz.
Oxford’s Curiosity Carnival 2017 will join hundreds of other European cities in celebrating European Researchers’ Night.
