Think scientists are boring boffins that don’t leave the lab? Think again! The brainiacs of history spent hundreds of years breaking the rules, blowing things up and performing dangerous experiments. 
Now it’s your turn to get stuck in. Discover what they did and how they did it with Dan Green, author of Rebel Science, shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize. Ask Dan your questions about some of the most famous faces in the book – what did they invent? where did they go wrong, and who did they argue with?
- Tycho Brahe, the astronomer with the metal nose and pet moose!
- Find out how the original rebel scientist Galileo Galilei dodged being burned alive!
- It's the wurst – Rudolph Virchow fights a duel with sausages!
- Get down and dirty with the discovery of DNA's structure!
Come and celebrate 400 years of rebel antics. Expect plenty of silly wigs and terrible jokes.
Dress up as a scientist and be in with a chance of winning a signed copy of Rebel Science! 
This is a free event in partnership with The Royal Society.
