Researchers Revealed

Researchers Revealed, brought to you by Durham University, offers a unique opportunity to explore the mysterious world of research and what it means to you. This is the first event of its kind in the UK. The event is designed to provide you with the opportunity to meet researchers within the context of festive and 'fun' activities in a relaxed atmosphere, to celebrate the human face of research. In addition to an Exhibition Area and an International Cafe, there will be a scheduled programme in the Main Arena with Jon Tickle as MC.

Join us on Friday 25th September 2009 at the Great North Museum, Newcastle Upon Tyne to experience:

A journey through the first 1,000 hours of human life through a selection of dresses from Helen Storey’s inspirational and internationally acclaimed fashion exhibition “Primitive Streak”

Science experiments using everyday household ingredients with the Naked Scientists

A combination of comedy, music and science with the Punk Scientists

Doors are open from 18.00 – 22.30. Free entry.  Everyone Welcome. No booking required.

Please let us know your thoughts on researchers and research by completing our questionnaire.

Background

Researchers Revealed is part of the pan-European event “Researchers’ Night”, organised by the European Commission, which takes place on the last Friday in September each year.  The celebration is part of the “Researchers in Europe” initiative, and involves a wide range of scientific and research organisations (including museums, laboratories and academic institutions) hosting, all over Europe, a variety of entertaining and fun events planned to run late into the night of Friday, 25 September 2009. This is the first Researchers’ Night to take place in the UK. The main partners in this project are Durham University and Naked Science Ltd.
