ATOM 2018 - Cancelled Events rescheduled for 12th May

With our speaker having been snowed in in his rural home near Shaftesbury we've had to reschedule the Lion in the Living Room talk. This is now confirmed for the 12th May at 2.30pm and you can find more details here.


We're also pleased to announce our Science Dome event featured FREE film screenings will be at Abingdon Market Place on the same day.

Science Market / Science Dome / Family Science Fair

Please note that the Science Dome event has been postponed due for safety reasons related to the weather but the Family Science Fair is an indoor event and will still go ahead. There is also a great talk about Giant Pterosaurs.



Chris Lintott of Sky at Night

ATOM Festival offers a range of talks on scientific themes including eminent speakers such as Professor Chris Lintott, who presents the BBC's Sky at Night, and Professor Marcus Du Sautoy.





Volcanoes and Dinosaurs:  Scientists Out There

Some of our talks are suitable for younger people and can inspire them to enjoy scientific subjects. Not all scientists spend their life in laboratories!  Back from field trips that take them all over the world, Dr Mike Cassidy will tell you how to escape from a volcanic eruption and Dr Dave Martill will take you on a world tour to find out more about his favourite dinosaur family, the Giant Pterosaurs.
