POSTED BY AADD-UK ⋅ FEBRUARY 24, 2013

We’ll let the organisers of the Cambridge Science Festival speak for themselves:

Re: Cambridge Science Festival promotion

I am writing in the hope of promoting the 2013 Cambridge Science Festival on your website’s event page.

The Festival takes place 11 – 24 March 2013, and bookings for events are now open.

Please see below for information on our talk that may be of particular interest to you:

5.30pm – 7pm, 14 March

Focusing on ADHD

Babbage Lecture Theatre, New Museums Site,

CB2 3QH

Supported by The Wellcome Trust and the

British Association of Psychopharmacology

Poor concentration, hyperactivity and impulsivity

are common in people with ADHD. These

symptoms may be distressing and cause difficulties

in daily life, but what causes them? How can they

best be treated? This Brain Awareness Week

discussion panel includes Professor Barbara Sahakian,

Dr Ulrich Müller and Dr Sam Chamberlain.

Event: 27, Map: 4, Talk, Ages 14+, Pre book*

To book please visit our website www.cam.ac.uk/sciencefestival, or call 01223 766766.

With over two hundred events for all ages, the Festival aims to give everyone the opportunity to discover, question and take part in scientific activity at the University of Cambridge and partner organisations. Over the two week period, guests will be able to explore research that is leading the world at events that discuss science and its place in our lives – covering subjects from astronomy to zoology, with hands-on experiments and talks from leading researchers and celebrities.

Highlights this year include: Professor John Gurdon, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine; science comedian Robin Ince; author Simon Mayo; and up-and-coming BBC Science presenter Helen Czerski. We’re also delighted to welcome Benedict Cumberbatch as our Guest Director, whose note on the festival and its importance can be found in the programme and on our website.

Our family open days are on 16, 17 and 23 March, and there are hundreds of activities running throughout the entire Festival fortnight. With so much going on, there really is something for everyone and we hope you really enjoy it: we invite you to challenge your mind, try something new and join us on a journey of discovery and excitement.
