If you are heading to the Latitude Festival, a four-day long music festival in Henham Park in Suffolk, England, watch out for Guerilla Science. This group, started by Oxford chemistry graduate Richard Bowdler in 2007, "spread[s] science by stealth." In the Guardian, Zoe Cormier says, "Science is not about the soulless study of statistics, it is about questioning and celebrating what it means to be alive – which is exactly what music festivals are for." The group wants festival-goers "to taste a brain made of cake, spy the moons of Jupiter, dance to fractals, hunt for the Higgs, and ponder how utterly astounding it is that you are reading these words at all."
