Over the next three months, there will be an open air exhibition of scientific images across the city to demonstrate York’s contribution to science and innovation. The exhibition was launched with a science festival in Parliament Street, which included mini-beasts from Flamingo Land; a psychology exhibition from York St John University; the science behind chocolate with Nestlé and York Cocoa House; science-inspired artwork; microscopes from the University of York’s biology department; and other activities with schools, universities and the Yorkshire Air Museum.
