Think scientists are boring boffins that don’t leave the lab? Think again. The scientists of yore spent hundreds of years breaking the rules, blowing things up and performing dangerous experiments.

Now it’s your turn to get stuck in. Discover what they did and how they did it with Dan Green, author of Rebel Science, shortlisted for the 2016 Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize.

Signed copies of Rebel Science will be available to purchase (cash only) following the event.
