Curiosity Live

We're inviting you in, for a celebration!

A celebration of talent, research, innovation and creativity. Come and participate in research that's happening now, right on our doorstep with people who are carrying out ground-breaking work in their specialisms of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.

We're very lucky to be situated in Glasgow, Scotland where huge amounts of innovative work is happening in vast areas of science and technology. We want to get you involved in the action. We have a huge range of specialists who will be visiting us to create a festival atmosphere. You can talk to them about their work, you can get involved in studies and participate in experiments and research — making a difference to study across sectors in our country.

Take a look at some of the fantastic guests that we're welcoming for our first celebratory weekend, from 15th–17th June.

Glasgow School of Art Dynamic Interactive Navigation for Familiarisation and Desensitisation: We live in a society which does not fully understand how to support hidden disabilities. People living with hidden disabilities such as autism, dementia, learning disabilities and mental health problems are far more likely to experience high levels of discrimination, isolation, fear, anxiety and poverty

Friendly Access (FA), the School of Simulation and Visualisation (SimVis) at The Glasgow School of Art, and Crag3D Ltd have engaged with people with hidden disabilities across Scotland, to gain understanding of those environmental stressors in busy, time constrained environments that trigger stress and anxiety.

Building upon this knowledge, we are designing an inclusive solution to support some of the most vulnerable members of our society in some particularly critical environments such as airports. Our solution consists of an immersive and interactive Virtual Reality (VR) experience suitable for today’s affordable smartphones using a VR headset, downloadable free of charge.
