Take a virtual ride into space and more at Innovate Guildford 2016


The Innovate Guildford free Science & Arts Festival at GLive on March 12, 10am – 4pm, is a chance for everyone to explore science, technology and the arts through interactive displays, exhibits, entertainment and workshops.

Visitors will enjoy a whole host of different experiences, with many aimed at inspiring young people to think about science as a career. Explore a pop up planetarium, take a virtual ride in space, discover the latest in veterinary science, find out how a brain can turn music into art – just some of the activities on offer.

The Festival is part of British Science Week (11 – 20 March) and is the Mayor of Guildford’s initiative, Cllr Nikki Nelson-Smith, as part of her theme: ‘Inspiring Guildford’s Future Innovators’. A host of organisations across the science and arts spectrum, including McLaren Automotive, Andertons, ACM, Code Club, Minecraft, University of Surrey, Pirbright Institute and many more will add to the Festival scene.

The event will also showcase the many cutting edge organisations based in Guildford who are developing products, solutions and services for the future right here on our doorstep.

The Mayor says: “This is a free event designed to excite, entertain and inspire. We are lucky in Guildford to have so many science, technology and arts companies locally who are breaking new ground in their industries – companies who are keen to employ the next generation of innovators. My idea for this event is to show what is possible, what bright futures lie ahead for young people and the opportunities available here in Guildford.”

Dr Bryan Charleston, Interim Director at The Pirbright Institute says: "We are very much looking forward to the Festival where we will invite visitors to explore our unique interactive stand 'flu fighters'. The event gives us the ideal opportunity to show what can be achieved through scientific development and research and inspire the next generation."

Professor Jane Ogden of The University of Surrey, says: "The University of Surrey is delighted to be involved in such an exciting and engaging event to show how the Surrey region is a world leader in research and innovation, with a reputation for excellence of which we are immensely proud."
