Be Curious with free family-friendly online events from the University of Leeds

Be Curious, the University of Leeds’ annual family friendly research open event, moves online for 2020 with a jam-packed programme, which aims to showcase world-leading research to the wider public.

Launching on Saturday 10 October 2020 with a full day of live events, the fifth annual instalment of the hugely popular Be Curious showcase runs until Friday 23 October. With family events, fun activities, challenges and inspiring evening talks… there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

We’ll even be joined by YouTuber and BBC TV & Radio presenter Greg Foot, who’ll be taking us on a scientific journey into the deep dark ocean and telling us about his work with the Blue Planet II team. All events are free, but please note that some events require registration.
