Explore the world of gaming, from retro arcades to VR technology, at the next Science Museum Lates event Power UP. Over 160 consoles and hundreds of games spanning five decades of gaming will be showcased with a load more activities to get involved with. There’ll be workshops and Q&As on the future of storytelling in video games, the boundaries between esports and in-person sports, and how the games industry is tackling climate change; the Ready Singer One choir will be performing songs from your fave video games; you can dance away at a silent disco; battle it out at the board game cafe; have a go at designing your own game; go on a Pokemon-style hunt through the museum; and put your gaming knowledge to the test at the pub quiz.
