Science is everywhere. In our homes, at our workplace and in all manner of environments throughout our lives. You can engage with the wonders of science through our curated program of livestreamed and pre-recorded, digital conversations, plus podcasts, audio tours, online resources and more!

Digital Conversations

We’re pleased to present the 2022 pre-recorded series of Digital Conversations. These are available to watch online, for free, whenever it suits.


Cool Jobs

Come behind the scenes in a series of short films of experts who use science to do some of the coolest jobs on the planet.

They’ll share their exciting journey, and explain how following their dreams has led them to the most amazing jobs in the world.

Livestreamed Conversations

Our program of conversations and talks gives voice to science as our topical experts share the latest evidence, discoveries, theories and practical applications for what we know, what we don’t know and what we need to know.

Livestreamed Conversations are available for ticketholders to re-watch on demand until 11.59pm, Sunday 20 March.
