Creative Science Zone

Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London

How does it feel to sing or play a game with a stranger? Get involved and find out how a sense of connectedness is shaped by how we communicate with each other.

What affects how it feels to briefly interact with a stranger? Participate in live science where you will sing or play a game with a stranger.

Talk to researchers from the Centre for Performance Science (Royal College of Music and Imperial College London) and the Centre for Music and Science (University of Cambridge) about how it felt, why we’re doing this project, and how this all connects to flourishing and wellbeing.

This experience will last around 15 minutes. Drop in anytime.
