Be Curious 2020

Be Curious, the University of Leeds’ annual family friendly research open event, moves online for 2020 with a jam-packed programme, which aims to showcase world-leading research to the wider public.

Have you ever wondered what happens at a University? Launching on Saturday 10 October with a full day of live events, the fifth annual instalment of the hugely popular Be Curious showcase will run until Friday 23 October.

Be Curious 2020 will now run in a virtual format in October 2020 and we’ve been pulling out all the stops to make it a not-to-be-missed online extravaganza! With family events, fun activities, challenges and inspiring evening talks… there’s something for everyone to enjoy! We’ll even be joined by YouTuber and BBC TV & Radio presenter Greg Foot, who’ll be taking us on a scientific journey into the deep dark ocean and telling us about his work with the Blue Planet II team, so why not join us and Be Curious?  

All events are free, but please note that some events require registration
