ZombieLab: Delve into the mind of a Zombie

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 30th Jan 2013

Imagine the world in the grip of a zombie outbreak. A desperate society would turn to scientists for answers.

Beginning on the evening of Wednesday 30th January at Lates, and continuing over the weekend of the 2/3rd February, ZombieLab will encourage visitors to explore the science of consciousness while evading the zombie horde.

ZombieLab, a free, three day event for ages 15+ at the Science Museum, features over 15 interactive experiences, including a Zombie Academy, collective behaviour experiments, hands-on demonstrations by leading consciousness researchers and the live criminal trial of a zombie - all designed to educate, surprise and fascinate while exploring consciousness and the scientific and social implications of a zombie attack.

Although described as the ‘citadel of the senses' by Dr Bor and home to our sense of self, our scientific understanding of consciousness is still relatively new. ZombieLab will examine recent advances in consciousness research, including how the study of conscious experience can help our understanding of how we percieve the world.

Times: 18:45-22:00 (30 Jan) & 12:00 – 17:00 (2/3rd Feb)

Cost: Free
