The Cheltenham Science Festival is getting closer and closer, and my excitement level is getting higher and higher. Thanks to the UCL bursary I have the opportunity to attend quite a good number and range of events (though some events I really wanted to attend did overlap, so difficult choices had to be made too).
Well, are any of you attending the festival? If so, this is the event schedule I will be following: quite hectic but still highly enticing.

It would be great to meet up with you there, or to hear your thoughts about the events and the Science Festival in general. So if you’re going to be there, drop me a comment here, ping me on twitter, or smoke signals would otherwise have to suffice.
There are a few more things in the pipeline for me to get more involved during the festival. But more about that later!
