The UK hosts a plethora of science festivals up and down the country throughout the year. The biggest one being the British Science Festival which took place just under a month ago. But Britain’s appetite for science festivals doesn’t stop there. If you were unfortunate to have missed any of these jam-packed festivals, well, worry not. UK’s biggest science enthusiast cities (in my humble opinion), Manchester and London, will be holding their own science festivals this month.
London Science festival
19th – 26th October 2011
Manchester Science Festival
22nd – 30th October 2011
If you are planning to go to any of them, we would love to know your thoughts and maybe we might see you there!
I had started this blog http://thebeerevelation.wordpress.com/ to discuss honey and honeybee related research.
However, I was made aware of the needs of the Ahmadi youth interested in research to have an outlet to discuss issues related to science, research, religion and science, existence of God, the scientific truths of the Holy Qur’an and so forth.
With grace of Allah, a few Khuddam who are pursuing research studies are now part of my core team that will run this blog. Please pray that it can help towards fulfilling Huzur Aqdas(atba)’s wishes including inspiring young Ahmadis to pursue research, encourage good research, admonish bad research, and show the truths contained within the Holy Qur’an.
