Natural History Museum Lates

Science is a cornerstone of modern society but sharing the work of scientists can often be a challenge. At Pop! science, a lates event at the Natural History Museum, we explored some of the different ways that science can be and has been shared with the world over the generations. A record-breaking 4,500 people attended!

From television to poetry, animation to photography, we explored some of the ways that people have engaged with and explored science from early Victorian naturalists to the latest citizen science. Featuring: poetry from Don Paterson, project poet, who composed poetry and performed it for the first time during the evening, live animation with project artist Sydney Padua, a magic lantern demonstration from Geoff Belknap, live music, and more!
