The Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition is a free festival of science and technology featuring cutting-edge experiments and research from across the UK.
From mosquitoes to anti-matter, surgical robots to space junk, there's a scientific smorgasbord of 22 different pioneering projects on view and a chance to take part in hands-on activities.
The explosive world of volcanic activity, ways to deal with the problem of plastic in the oceans, and studying how Martian rocks might provide ideas on how to tackle climate change on earth, are among the subjects that come under the spotlight.
This year's programme of talks covers a wide range of topics including space exploration, gravitational waves and driverless cars. The Ugly Animals Roadshow on 10 July is led by biologist Simon Watt, who is dedicated to raising the profile of the oddities and unusual members of the animal kingdom, such as the blobfish.
All talks and activities are free to attend – so it's worth arriving early for your chosen event as their may be queues, particularly over the week-end.
The Summer Science Exhibition runs from Monday 4 July to Sunday 10 July at The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1
