Cambridge University has published a range of podcast videos from its annual Science Festival through iTunes.
The Cambridge University Science Festival is a ten-day celebration featuring talks, workshops and demonstrations hosted by people who study or work with science, engineering and technology. It ends on 25 March.
The event offers a glimpse at the latest research emanating from the world's leading science labs, and features events at the University as well as a range of online resources designed to boost scientific learning and understanding.
The six video podcasts are presented by Carol Vorderman. The first two podcasts are available now and four more will be posted at approximately two to four day intervals until 28 March.
"We have a series of video and audio podcasts in association with Apple to show you some of the exciting science you can see at the Festival," the University said.
