Take Great North Museum: Hancock up on their offer to have a late night ramble around their wonderful space on Friday 29th September, as the museum once again hosts their Science Uncovered evening.

Gathering for European Researchers’ Night, a continent-wide celebration of popular science, the event will see clever bods from around the North East get together to discuss and conduct research, spark debate and share their innovative, cutting-edge work over a drink or two. There’s a watery theme to this year’s event, with opportunities to hear about seafaring voyages of the 18th century, meet polar explorer and adventurer Conrad Dickinson and learn about coral reefs and ocean acidification. Attendees are also invited to measure their heart rates while they hold their breath, and discover which marine animal they resemble in terms of breath hold-ability; learn more about ‘singing sands’ from across the world and talk to Durham scientists tracking earthquakes and tremors under the sea floor.

Science Uncovered forms part of the museum’s regular after hours programme, which includes everything from grown-up sleepovers to a wildlife discotheque.
