The 'Summer Science Exhibition' is an annual display of cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. Exhibits include the latest research into ageing, the study of how genes behave, Europe's 'drowned landscapes', findings from the Herschel Telescope and the science of sensing bubbles and its applications for detecting disease. Café Scientifique events, based around the senses, take place each day, along with other lectures and discussions. Many of the displays are tailored towards young people and families and during the weekend of July 7 and 8 there are a number of family-focused events including entertainer David Hall as Sir Isaac Newton in a high-energy educational show (July 7, 8 11.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm), a plasma ball workshop to harness the power of electricity (July 7, 8 12.30pm, 3.30pm) and the chance to create a mini tornado in the 'Physics in the Field' drop-in workshop (July 7, 8).
