The WISE Festival – Celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Children and adults look at some science experiments on a table on the south bank in London

Laugh, sing and think at this mini festival celebrating and raising the voices of women in science. 

Drop in to our free Entrance Hall sessions throughout the day, including fun scientific presentations, hands-on activities and a chance to create your own (bio)selfie using the bacteria swabbed from your cheek. 

Then join us for an evening of talks to hear from women past and present about their experiences of working in the sciences.
