Every year Imperial College London host a festival on the exploration of all things science.

Top new highlights for last year included the Transport Zone, which featured a stunning array of veteran cars recreating London’s first ever motor show 120 years ago, and Sensorium, a cross-disciplinary project bridging art and science.

Popular highlights of previous Festivals featured again this year, including the Energy and Environment Zone, where visitors had a chance to race laser tractor beams and build their own ecosystems; the Superbug Zoneand the Robot Zone.

A group of London schoolchildren had a sneak preview of the festival, making jelly worms and expanding marshmallows.

Overall, the Festival saw more than 500 scientists get out of their labs and share the fun and fascination of their research with the public.

Couldn't make it to the Festival this year? Don’t worry, we filmed some of it for you. We captured the opening ceremony, spoke to researchers about how to survive a zombie apocalypse, learned how to manage an ecosystem, experienced Imperial's student creativity at its finest and watched a parade of veteran cars

Deatisl for the 2017 festival will be posted soon. To find out more, please click here.
