The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition opened to the public yesterday! It's on at the Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton Terrace (just off The Mall) through Sunday 10 July. There are 22 exhibits from physics, chemistry, biology, maths, engineering and medicine. Loads of fun interactives, piles of free stuff and many eager energetic scientists to tell you about their work in memorable, bite-size chunks. Please do drop by if you have the time and are geographically compatible.

I'm on the Aurora Explorer stand tomorrow (Thursday 7 July) from 13:30 to 17:00, but will have to depart promptly to go to the Harry Potter premiere. I'm also there on Sunday 10 July from 14:30 to 18:00, when the exhibition closes. Tip: exhibitors will be looking to offload remaining freebies on Sunday, so if you want toys/magnets/keyrings/postcards/other swag, Sunday afternoon is the time to go.

The baby spacecraft I painted are currently having their 5 seconds of fame on the BBC web site here at 02:44, and you can explore the exhibits online on the RSSE web site here.

Long, long shot, but is this suitable for a 10 year old at all ? My cousin's staying with me this weekend and I'd love some suggestions of things to do with her that aren't classic museums.

It's absolutely suitable for a 10 year old! The exhibition is meant to be accessible to all, and there are lots of games and freebies that are meant for younger children.

Excellent ! I shall ask her if she fancies it then. I am terribly ignorant of what kind of things she's into so I don't want to just decide what we're doing without consulting her, but it sounds briliant !
