The popular Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity (FOSAC) is going virtual this year, with fun and interactive activities for the whole family.
Scenographer, digital artist and CDT alumni Roma Patel (2013 cohort) is currently the Festival Artist in Residence. Roma has developed an installation exploring incredible mycelium networks, fungi and fairy rings. Roma’s installation is designed as a sensory and playful experience for young children under 5. The installation will be available to explore at Wollaton Hall when it reopens.
For this year’s festival there is also a first-ever FOSAC Magazine with many family-friendly articles and activities helping to show that science is part of our everyday lives and help people engage in science at home. Included in the magazine is fellow Horizon CDT PhD candidate Angela Thornton (2019 cohort) who introduces Mind Uploading, the research behind it and the opportunity to explore what people know and feel about the topic.
