What Science Will Be Like in 2056

09 April 2006


Calling all aspiring science writers! If you're aged 11-18 and want the chance to prove your talents as a science communicator like Dr Chris and Dr Kat, then you should enter Cancer Research UK's latest competition, the Science of Tomorrow. Simply think about what science will be like in the year 2056, and write 700 words on what you imagine. Will all the laboratory work be done by white-coated robots? Or will we all be dead from bird flu, or a more sinister infection? The competition will be judged by a prestigious panel, including Zoe Salmon the Blue Peter presenter, and Tim Radford, ex-science editor at The Guardian. There are some great prizes up for grabs, as well as the chance to publicise your literary talents. Prizes will be awarded for winners aged 11-14 and 15-18, and there are also regional awards. To find out more, and to enter online, visit Cancer Research UK's website www.scienceoftomorrow.org.uk But get your fingers moving fast, because the deadine is April 28th. We're very sorry but the competition is only open to children in the UK.
