Giant millipedes, programmable robots and an exploration of gravity will all feature in the 2012 Otley Science Festival.
The Otley Courthouse- based event runs from Monday, November 12, to Saturday, November 17, and will include talks on The Nine Greatest Enigmas in Science, by the BBC's Professor Jim Al-Khalili, and Astronomy on the Beaches of Hawaii, by Professor Ian Robson.
Festival organiser Marty Jopson, the resident scientist on the BBC's One Show, will use “flames and silly machines” as he recounts the story of how Sir Isaac Newton came up with his theory of gravity.
Other attractions will include a Silly Science Toddler Time for under-fives, a presentation on Engineering, Mathematics and the Nude, by Dr Allan McRobie, and a Science Book Club celebrating the birthday of Alan Turing and computing.
