Formerly known as the Discovery Festival, the New Horizons Festival in Rotterdam looks to present a new image full of fun based on ground breaking research.
Part of the European Researchers' Night, the goal of the festival is to make scientific knowledge and research not only accessible, but also entertaining for the general public.
What this means for New Horizons is that there will be ample opportunities for visitors to interact and participate in experiments with scientists, artists and academics.
The result is a mix of experiment and art to gain deeper understandings of sometimes complex principles.
