The weekend in pictures.
So our inaugural Great Exhibition Road Festival has wrapped up, let’s look at pictures!
I’d quite like to live in space shed man’s world, it looks fun.
Exhibition Road was full of Festival crowns…
Queen Victoria back for one day only, to check that the Exhibition was indeed great.
The free ice lolly man outside the V&A, right place, right time.
A future astronaut suits up.
Hot and busy, Exhibition Road comes to life.
Simple tasks taking on new life with virtual reality fly vision.
Keeping everyone stocked up with Festival crowns.
Meanwhile, Alumni Weekend was in full swing.
Right outside, solar powered bugs were zipping all over.
President Alice Gast wears the robot suit to help Robot DE NIRO entertain curious minds.
It’s a pretty hot day for a deep sea suit at the Nature Zone, but this little fellow didn’t mind one bit.
The dappled light through the trees of Prince’s Gardens offered a lovely, and cooler, spot to sit down.
Elsewhere in Prince’s Gardens minds were busy in the Curiosity Zone
Wiping out bacteria takes real concentration in the Infection Zone.
The giant Imperial letters provide a nice location for a proud father and daughter photo.
You have to wonder what regular passers by made of the whole thing!
A future scientist is born.
Music performances were a regular feature of the weekend all around Exhibition Road.
Taking climate change seriously, these youngsters light up the city with wind power in the Greener Futures Zone.
Jesse from the Social Media team live reporting from the event, the video he is recording in this picture can be seen on Imperial’s Twitter.
The Robot Zone and the emotion-mimicking robot that never ceases to fascinate everyone.
Sharing the wonder.
An incredible end to the weekend and a rammed Exhibition Road.
Packing down at the end of the day and the robot hockey goes home to the Robot Intelligence Lab.
….and I finally got my face on the College Homepage… kind of.
