NHM NIGHT4

Objective

"NHM NIGHTS4 will deliver mass participation of a diverse public audience in a unique event to meet the Natural History Museum’s most dynamic and engaging international scientists in a festival of scientists in central London. With a rich and vibrant community of research scientists and PhD students, including research partners from around the UK (many of whom are accomplished science communication practitioners). The NHM is well positioned to breakdown existing public stereotypes of researchers. This project will drive home to the public the role and value science and to inspire the next generation of young researchers. 8,000 participants will visit the Natural History Museum's London and Tring locations to be greeted by over 350 scientists delivering more than 150 different engaging activities and formats alongside professional educators in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The impact of this event on the participants will be profound, and help foster a long term engagement with science."
