Rocket-powered cars, crime and smelly texts at Natural History Museum late

Natural History Museum Lates

As part of Universities Week, the Natural History Museum will be staying open late tonight, June 11, for a night of educational excitement.

If you haven’t already heard about Universities Week, it’s a seven-day stint of free exhibitions and events displaying the latest university research at the Natural History Museum. This evening’s after-hours shenanigans will have loads of scien-terrific activities happening, including the chance to step into a crime scene to see how technological advances can help to solve a mystery. You’ll also have the chance to ride an emotional roller coaster (not literally), learn how eye-gaze technology could help mobilise the disabled, or send a smell with a smartphone. There’s even a rocket-powered car that can break the world land speed record of 1,000mph. Oh and it’s all totally free, so think of it like uni without the £30k debts.
