New Scientist Live is a festival of ideas and discovery, taking place at ExCeL London from Thursday 28th September to Sunday 1st October. Rooted in the biggest, best and most provocative science, New Scientist Live will feature five immersive zones covering Cosmos, Engineering, Earth, Technology & Humans. We are delighted to be sponsoring the Engineering Zone at this year’s event.
Now in its second year after winning multiple awards in 2016, New Scientist Live expects over 30,000 people to attend. Don’t miss the BAE Systems exhibition where we will be demonstrating cutting-edge defence and security technologies. We have something for everybody regardless of age, profession or scientific knowledge; we guarantee you will learn something new and exciting!
We are delighted to have two speaking opportunities at this year’s event. Our Friday lecture at 10:30 will be delivered by Steph Jones & Sarah Thomson - key engineers on our UK Sport partnership programme that has helped our country’s athletes win medals. In their talk: “From fighter jets to bobsleds” they explain how BAE Systems’ capabilities have been applied in the world of sport.
Following this, our Saturday slot at 10:30 will be occupied by one of our lead Technologists, Professor Nick Colosimo, who will reveal how we could borrow from nature to tackle defence and security threats. He may even spill the beans on how you could theoretically create a real-life light saber!
We look forward to talking to you about our Company and the technologies we develop to protect what matters most.
