For one night only meet scientists, engineers, and historians on the grounds of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s historic ship, the S.S. Great Britain and have a go at a range of hands-on activities.  Join researchers and participate in a host of interactive trails and take part in a range of hands-on activities to discover how Brunel’s legacy can help us to understand the way we live today.  You’ll also find Researcher’s Tales, where you can hear first-hand accounts and short stories from researchers about their life and work as a researcher.

This event is part of FUTURES2021, which takes place on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September 2021.  The exciting events programme includes a range of online activities and in-person events at venues across the South West.  With storytelling, talks, quizzes and comedy all exploring the worlds of science, culture and research, there is something for everyone at FUTURES2021.
