A weekend of wonder for Brownies, Guides and Rangers, packed full of mind-blowing science and tomorrow’s tech.
24 - 26 April 2020 £85 Foxlease

What will life be like in 2040?

Find out at Twisted Tech, an awe-inspiring new event giving you a glimpse of tomorrow’s world today. Meet robots. Strut your stuff in future fashions. Find new ways to protect the planet. And try loads more mind-blowing activities that are light years away from a school science lesson!

What’s happening

There are four zones for you to explore, covering everything from climate change to movie magic, fashion futures to medical innovations. You’ll also have the chance to meet the women who are changing the world with science and technology. And be the first to try the latest gadgets and tech too.

The four zones:

  • You
    This one’s all about you (and the 7 billion other humans on the planet!). How can cutting edge science and tech keep us all healthy?
  • Your everyday
    Look at the world around you and you’ll see technology is everywhere, from how we communicate to the clothes we wear and what we watch.
  • Your future
    What’s next? Enter the brave new world of tomorrow’s technology and think about how it might change how we live.
  • Your universe
    Go where no guiding unit has gone before. Explore planet earth, the environment and the mind-bending universe beyond.

Your night
The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Wonder at the universe with our stargazers, dance the day away at the silent disco or see if you can beat our retro computer games.
