There was a chance to discover a future vision of self-driving cars, interplanetary probes and more at the Royal Society's 2019 Summer Science Exhibition.

The Summer Science Exhibition was a free, week-long festival celebrating the cutting edge of UK science. With a packed programme of thought-provoking talks, jaw-dropping demonstrations and entertaining performances alongside 22 exhibits of hands-on science and technology - including two from the University of Leicester - there was something for all ages.

A special evening opening of the exhibition was held on Tuesday 2 July for adults only, with additional talks and workshops in a relaxed atmosphere. Families could explore the exhibition at their own pace during the weekend, with a dedicated children’s area in the cafe for younger members and exciting shows for all ages.
