We’re delighted to have received some great feedback on our talks at this year’s Cambridge Science Festival. 88% of respondents, ranging in age from 17 to 81 years, rated our event as good or very good and when asked how much they felt they had learnt, the average response was 7.8 on a scale of 0–10. We had some wonderful comments from our audience too: ‘This lecture was really interesting… and the language, although difficult, was understandable. Very, very nice lecture!’ ‘Really enjoyed the talk, great facilitators made it all run smoothly too.’ Our thanks to all those who came along to hear the talks. We’re very much looking forward to being part of the festival again next year.
