A lively, imaginative, mind-boggling evening with Kilter Theatre and the University of Bristol's quantum researchers.

Can quantum technology help solve climate change, or will it devour the internet for breakfast? At this moment in time it seems nobody knows which is more likely...

That's why Bristol's own pioneering quantum researchers need YOU (the greatest range of the greatest minds) to focus their attention and help them imagine a future where quantum tech saves the planet! 

Join scientists from the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs and radical theatre-makers, Kilter, to collectively unpick the future applications and ethics of this most mind-boggling science. 

In two hours of fast-talking, experimental role-playing and balancing along the infamous Washing Line of Time, Kilter and the researchers will engage, educate and empower every participant so that together we can design ourselves a happy, productive, sustainable future. How hard can it be?

Suitable for all inquisitive minds. No prior knowledge of quantum physics is required! Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

This is a FREE event but places are limited and should be booked in advance.
